Abstract

The book collects a number of articles dealing with global networks. They have been prepared as contributions to the second FAST programme of the European Community. This programme intended to contribute to the Forecasting and Assessment of Science and Technology (FAST) by research projects and so-called network-activities. The projects and activities have been grouped under five major headings: work, services, food technology, natural resources, and communication. One communication project especially struck the attention of IVA. Its serial number was COM8. It entailed the idea of short studies, expert seminars and synthesizing meetings on a broad theme: the tensions between global telecommunication networks, or even one global spider network on the one hand, and the relevance, the autonomy of the national dimension (or dimensions) on the other.
