Seeking Convergence in Policy and Practice: Communications in the Public Interest Volume 2

Book by Marita Moll, Leslie Regan Shade

This book is only available for purchase from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA). This collection of articles, edited by Marita Moll and Leslie Regan-Shade, examines public communication policy over the last decade. Academics and activists explore critical communications issues, from meaningful citizen engagement in public policy debate to privacy protection in the emerging health infrastructure.

As Moll and Regan-Shade point out, in post-9/11 Canada, the communications world is often chaotic – from spam in our e-mail inboxes, to data-eating viruses. Governments are trying to reign in this chaos through regulation, which is a tricky exercise: in the 1990s, regulations were labeled as offensive to progress. Throughout this collection, contributors also explore how communications conflicts are being balanced in Canada. Topics examined include e-health policies, digital activism, and intellectual property rights.
