The Internet and Four Dimensions of Citizenship

Preview

This chapter studies the implications of the various technical developments for citizenship, relying mostly on the term ‘Internet’ as a synecdoche. It then identifies the four dimensions of citizenship, looking at how they relate to media, and also tries to determine how the Internet interacted – and possibly revolutionized – these dimensions of citizenship.

Keywords: technical developments; citizenship; Internet; revolution
