From NWICO to WSIS: 30 Years of Communication Geopolitics Actors and Flows, Structures and Divides, edited by Divina Frau-Meigs, Jérémie Nicey, Patricio Tupper, Michael Palmer and Julia Pohle. Intellect Books, 2012.

Through extensive research and testimonies from those involved, this book presents an in-depth account from the 1970s to the present of the major issues concerning information flow in international geopolitics, including a look at the negotiations surrounding the major policy debates.

Few studies of NWICO and WSIS have considered the continuity between the two activities – or included in the debate the crucial intermediary period between – and this book provides new insight into an issue of multilingual and multicultural importance.
