The latest issue of the International Review of Information Ethics is out. I have an article in it called “The Right to Nonparticipation for Global Digital Citizenship.” Thanks to Jared Bielby for editing the issue. Find the abstract to my paper below:
The Right to Nonparticipation for Global Digital Citizenship
This article argues for the right to nonparticipation for Global Digital Citizenship (GDC). It recuperates the notion of political nonparticipation in the context of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and GDC in order to show that nonparticipation can operate effectively in non-State spheres, particularly online. The paper begins with a discussion of nonparticipation in the context of Nation States and non-Statal Organizations before offering a brief survey of the terms Global Citizenship (GC), Digital Citizenship (DC), and GDC. Nonparticipation in an online context is then explained, followed by a discussion of practical concerns, such as who might enforce GDC rights among global digital citizens.
