Commission on the Geography of
Global Information Society
evolving information society and its associated spatial, technological and
political dimensions, has become a worldwide phenomenon linked by networks
of information and communications technology.
The complexity and scope of social and economic change connected
with global information society has rapidly outpaced our ability as social
scientists to understand and predict how social change will evolve.
The primary objective of the Commission on the Geography of Global
Information Society is to address the spatial context for the relationship
between places, people and the information society.
The Commission builds on the strong foundations of prior commissions
including the Commission on Telecommunications and Communication (IGU
96-CO4) with its focus on technology and communications, and the successor
Commission on the Geography of Information Society with focus on the
intersection between information technology and the emerging knowledge
economy. The Commission on the
Geography of Global Information Society continues a sixteen-year tradition
of active research and engagement across six continents, and advances
geographic scholarship around several core spatial and social phenomena.
