Description : This book represents an important voice in the scientific discourse on what constitutes a sustainable information society, and provides a new comprehensive and forward-looking approach to such a development. This approach is based on the adoption of information and communication technologies (ICTs) by the main stakeholders of society, including individuals, enterprises, and public administration, who should use ICTs in order to build the welfare of present and future generations, ensure economic growth and socio-cultural development, increase participation in public life, permit personal development, and build the wisdom of society. As such, the book mainly focuses on the role ICTs play in transforming business, public administration and everyday life in the context of the sustainable information society. This volume will appeal to both researchers and practitioners, as it provides significant areas and directions for research on the sustainable information society, and suggests important issues for programming, building and adopting such a society. The book will allow the reader to answer such critical contemporary questions as ‘What is the sustainable information society and what role is played by ICTs in this society?’; ‘What are the challenges and tasks of people, enterprises, and public administration that lead towards the sustainable information society?’; ‘How can ICTs support people, enterprises, and public administration in programming, building and adopting such a society?’; ‘What are the factors affecting ICT adoption by people, enterprises, and public administration in this context?’; ‘What are the areas that should require a primary focus in order to achieve the most satisfying results of ICT adoption by people, enterprises, and public administration?’; and ‘How can ICT adoption by people, enterprises, and public administration be measured here?’

Description : This book focuses on the social and environmental issues being addressed by agricultural law within the current globalised system. What is agricultural law? Agricultural regulations concern and affect essential human needs and values that must be dealt with by pursuing a comprehensive and coordinated global approach. By tracking the developments in this context, this book explores the new challenges that agricultural law needs to address in order to frame emerging dilemmas. International governance of natural resources and their role in addressing food insecurity is the object of the first Part of the volume, which deals with sustainable agriculture and agro-ecosystem services in connection with the food security issue. The second Part focuses on the regulation of food as the main product of agricultural activity, and explores the answers that the law can provide in order to accommodate consumers’ interests and concerns (inter alia, novel foods, animal welfare, direct sales and e-commerce). The third Part examines the social, environmental and legal consequences of a renewed interest in agricultural investments. Further, it analyses the evolution and the interplay between different legal systems with regard to land tenure, environmental concerns and investments in agriculture.

Description : The growing importance of knowledge, research, innovation and evolving perspectives on expertise with the usage of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) are changing the sociology of knowledge in the globalized world. Universities are the major institutions involved in the production and dissemination of knowledge. This book looks at ICT for education initiatives taken up towards building a Knowledge Society as emphasized in national education policy regimes for encouraging knowledge generation, knowledge acquisition, knowledge diffusion and the exploitation of knowledge. The research examines the present practice of ICT adoption in an existing framework of University of Hyderabad (UOH) and Tezpur University (TZU) through intensive case study. The research attempts to analyze issues of knowledge, governance and access using ICT; the application of communication technologies in Higher Education Sector that helps in fulfilling the goal of a Knowledge Society; the communication process and strategies in the networking of higher education into a Knowledge Society; existing ‘digital divide’ and the implications. The Stakeholder’s perspective further highlights the advantages and the challenges faced in the actual implementation of ICT4E. Based on the study, the research offers recommendations for management, human resources, processes and institutional culture in ICT4E implementation.

Description : "Adaptation of applied Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) research results is one of the greatest challenges faced today in building the global Knowledge Economy. While research challenges can be quite similar across the world thus facilitating cross-border cooperation between researchers, government and industry, how actual research results can be exploited or implemented can vary considerably depending on the social, cultural and infrastructural context of the target country, province or region. This offers opportunities as well as challenges in terms of how applied ICT can be used to both support economic development and inform future research challenges. When cross-border collaboration is effective, there can be a valuable exchange of knowledge that can not only lead to successful adaptation of research results or lessons learnt from successful implementations in other countries, but can also provide insight into different problem solving techniques and new ways of thinking that can enrich the ICT research agenda. It is only through such mutually beneficial shared insight that the Digital Divide can be bridged. This set of two books brings together a comprehensive collection of over 220 contributions on commercial, government or societal exploitation of applied ICT, representing cutting edge research, good practice and practical eAdoption from Africa, the Americas, Asia & Europe."
