30 years after the official presentation, in Belgrade, of the report of the MacBride Commission, under the aegis of UNESCO on the New World Information and Communication Order (NWICO) and 5 years after the conclusion, in Geneva, of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), this colloquium will highlight the major theoretical and political issues of NWICO and WSIS. It seeks to draw up a balance-sheet of the issues and actors involved. The colloquium will build on the contributions of participants and highlight historical and international actors who will testify to their role in these debates. Filmed interviews of key figures will be featured.
