Digital Policy Council Urges Heads of State to Lead and Follow -- with Good Governance on the Net
Date:3/13/2010

a right, not a privilege. The dissemination of information is no longer controlled by large publishing houses, dominant corporations, or even powerful governments.

Iran is a prime example. Although the Iranian government controls its traditional media, discontented citizens unhappy with recent elections in that country were able to make their dissatisfaction known to the world through the use of social media. This is why leaders of unstable countries “continue to view Twitter and other social media as a threat to their authority, and justifiably so” reports The Digital Policy Council. DPC notes that restrictive governments are attempting to control social media access as a way to keep control over their populations. Evidence of this trend is seen in countries from China to Venezuela.

The report posits that web-based media will enhance the desire for inclusive governance among people living in restricted societies. And while their leaders may resist the use of social media, the population itself will embrace it and use it despite constraints. In this way, concludes The Digital Policy Council, social media must be viewed as “a significant means of change and NOT a means of control.”

Governments with no platforms or policy to engage their citizenry and the global community on the Net will find themselves vulnerable for 21st Century politics.
