EUROPE PARLEMENTAIRE Special Correspondent – North America: An exclusive investigative report on the United States’ digital priorities at the highest levels of government.
This issue provides the opportunity to explore several essential themes and to present the varying points of view of experts and practitioners in the electronic communications field and the digital economy, along with those of members of Parliament and other government officials.
It has been a challenge to combine the different perspectives on communications and the digital society, coming from the governmental and business worlds. These points of view, though complementary, do not always use the same vocabulary, the same analytical frameworks or methodology, even if they seek to ultimately achieve the same long-term result of being socially effective.
The major trends that will guide the future of this sector are explored via interviews and in-depth articles written by leading experts in the field.
This new special issue offers an opportunity for different players in the political and economic arenas of telecoms and new media, to outline their actions, their achievements and their projects, thus allowing them to broadcast this information to their regional, national and European partners.
The basic developments in the digital field
The quality of the contributions and the civic spirit guiding the interviews in this issue, gives local, national and European elected officials, as well as government and public policy makers, the most current information available on the digital society.
