DIGITAL DIVIDE AND FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS

  • Guido Saraceni Teramo University

Abstract

Because of the large spread of ICTs the world has become a truly global one. ICTs have landed a thousand walls, allowing people to get in touch regardless of distances and natural boundaries that once upon a time were considered insurmountable. Thus, digital divides is (are) still a big problem. A similar gap does not only concern the shameful inequality that separates rich and poor. From a cultural point of view, it indicates the uneven diffusion of the skills needed to obtain a benefit from the use of digital tools. As a matter of fact, digital divide(s) can be thought as the most important problem that we have to face, if we want to guarantee a complete and fair fruition of fundamental rights.
