Philippe Quéau illustrates how the global information society tends to create a unified market of formatted exchanges and practices, which do not always take into account the cultural specificities and the special needs of the many ‘knowledge societies’ around the world. The global information society also has to confront the extreme disparities of access to information and knowledge between the industrialized countries and the developing countries, as well as within societies themselves. This inevitably induces the need for fundamental political choices and arbitrages on the goals socially desirable, and a definition of the ‘global common good’.Development (2002) 45, 10–16. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110398
