The Internet and Politics Summary


The Internet and Politics: Citizens, voters and activists by Edited by Sarah Oates (University of Glasgow, UK)

This volume explores the nature of the Internet's impact on civil society, addressing the following central questions:

  • has the Internet demonstrated real potential to improve civil society through a wider provision of information, an enhancement of communication between government and citizen, or via better state transparency?
  • does the Internet pose a threat to the coherence of civil society as people are encouraged to abandon shared media experiences and pursue narrow interests?
  • in authoritarian states, does the Internet function as a beacon for free speech or as another tool for propaganda?
