This article introduces the special issue and argues that the contributions in it lead us to think more deeply about the need for endogenous rather than exogenous approaches to information and communications technologies (ICTs) in our analysis of globalisation, communications and political action. The argument covers three areas: globalisation virtual and material processes; communications as integral to politics; political action and new virtual forms.

Keywords: communications; globalisation; information and communications technologies; information society; networking; new economy; political action; social change; vitual processes
