EU preparation for WSIS
  EU Commission sets out objectives for the WSIS
  22 May 2003. The European Commission has issued a statement outlining principal objectives for the summit. Amongst its priorities are the development of a knowledge-based economy and of an appropriate legal framework, human capacity building, securing fundamental human rights, including the right to access information and knowledge, and the use of ICTs for socio-economic development. The statement remains fairly general and offers few surprises. However, points which could be of particular interest for civil society are the support for a right to communicate and for an inclusion of all stakeholders.
