Perché l'accesso a internet dovrebbe essere considerato un diritto fondamentale? Tutti ricordiamo la foto scattata a Tank Man, il ragazzo che il 5 giugno 1989 si parò davanti ai carri armati del Governo cinese divenendo il simbolo della manifestazione degli studenti di Piazza Tienanmen, in Cina. La protesta – che pure è considerata un evento storico importante – non ha cambiato il corso della storia in Cina, né ha dato vita a veri e propri moti rivoluzionari. Il fatto è che, nel 1989, Google, Youtube, Facebook e Twitter non esistevano. Ventuno anni dopo, tutt'altro destino hanno avuto le immagini del gesto di Mohammed Bouazizi, il giovane ambulante tunisino che il 17 dicembre 2010 si è dato fuoco a Sidi Bouzid, in un estremo gesto di protesta contro le condizioni economiche e politiche del suo Paese. Nello spazio di pochi minuti le immagini sono state pubblicate su Facebook, Twitter e Youtube e sono rimbalzate in tutto il mondo divenendo, di fatto, la miccia di quella che è poi passata alla storia come la 'primavera araba'. Partendo da casi concreti e da episodi di vita vissuta, comprendiamo perché il libero accesso alla Rete sia da considerare un diritto 'fondamentale', e quanto esso possa cambiare la vita di un uomo ma anche il corso della storia politica, culturale ed economica di un Paese. Una parola-chiave per ogni capitolo: spazio, diritti, accesso, cultura, uguaglianza, privacy, identità, anonimato, oblio, cittadinanza, sicurezza, democrazia. Sullo sfondo, la Dichiarazione dei diritti in Internet approvata dalla Commissione per i diritti e doveri relativi a Internet che, con la guida esperta di Stefano Rodotà, rappresenta a oggi uno degli sforzi più maturi al mondo di selezionare e riempire di contenuto quelli che sono o dovrebbero essere i diritti fondamentali dei cittadini digitali.

Despite the swift spread of social network concepts and their applications and the rising use of network analysis in social science, there is no book that provides a thorough general introduction for the serious reader. Understanding Social Networks fills that gap by explaining the big ideas that underlie the social network phenomenon. Written for those interested in this fast moving area but who are not mathematically inclined, it covers fundamental concepts, then discusses networks and their core themes in increasing order of complexity. Kadushin demystifies the concepts, theories, and findings developed by network experts. He selects material that serves as basic building blocks and examples of best practices that will allow the reader to understand and evaluate new developments as they emerge. Understanding Social Networks will be useful to social scientists who encounter social network research in their reading, students new to the network field, as well as managers, marketers, and others who constantly encounter social networks in their work.

Addressed not only to Catholics but to"every person living on this planet," Pope Francis' second encyclical is a challenging call for a "bold cultural revolution" in how we think about technological progress and economic growth. The degradation of our environment, he says, is a symptom of deeper problems: rapid change, unsustainable overconsumption, indifference to the poor, and the decay of social values. He offers a variety of solutions, including a change in lifestyles away from "extreme consumerism" and towards a greater sense of social responsibility. For Christians, an "ecological spirituality"-one that is grounded in the convictions of our faith- is not "an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience." Drawing on the rich social teachings of the Church, Laudato Si is a groundbreaking document that will be discussed and studied by both believers and non-believers for years to come. Study guide included for Reflection and Discussion,

Informatization is playing an increasingly important role in democratic politics. For some time already, various applications of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are, more or less successfully, used by politicians, representative bodies, political parties and citizens. It is, however, reasonable to believe that informatizaton will be of paramount interest for existing actors and institutions that are involved in public decision-making in a democracy. The advent of telecommunication infrastructures that will enable the use of all kinds of interactive facilities, is considered to be an important step towards a more participative democratic system. Many projects that share a common feature have been set up: their ambition to renew democratic decision-making structures and practises with the help of ICT. Most of these projects can be found at the level of local and/or regional government. In this book, the claim that these projects can reform or strengthen democratic politics is explored and discussed both empirically and theoretically. The research that is presented in this book makes clear that, as far as the role of informatization regarding the functioning of the democratic polity is concerned, it appears that informatization represents both opportunities and threats.
