The Resurgence of the State: Trends and Processes in Cyberspace Governance


Add your own review!

Overview

The transnational architecture of global information networks has made territorial borders less significant. Boundaries between spaces are becoming blurred in the evolving information age. But do information and communication technologies networks really lead to a weakening of the nation-state? This volume revisits the 'retreat of the state' thesis and tests its validity in the 21st century. It considers cyberspace as a matter of collective and policy choice, prone to usurpation by governance structures. Governments around the world are already reacting to the information revolution and trying to re-establish their leading role in creating governance regimes for the Information Age. The volume comes at a historical moment when new political dynamics are detected and new conceptual models are sought to categorize the attempts to deal with global/transnational issues. It will intrigue the reader with expert-level analysis of the role of the state in the emerging global/supranational governance structures by providing historical context and conceptualizing trends and social dynamics.

Reviews

'...shows that states still play a powerful regulatory role in the global age of cyberspace , amid the complexity of multi-level governance. It puts information technologies in context as only one among many factors shaping rules and regimes in several policy areas, and contributes a well-informed point of view to current debates about globalization in international relations, technology studies, and governance theory.' Charles D. Raab, University of Edinburgh, UK
