dc.description.abstract In this article we review the current debate on the impact of the increasing significance of information handling enabled by advances in information technology on socio-economic development, with particular emphasis on the self-determination of developing countries. We explore the concept of development, and examine the ways development has been linked to the notion of self­ determination. We examine how the trend towards economic internationalisation, which is based on new communication technologies, has been seen to affect the self-determination of developing countries. Finally, we examine the challenges posed on organisations and governments of developing countries: on organisations which are making efforts to create new information systems, and on governments trying to participate in a global politico­- economic system while safeguarding their cultural identity and their right to self-determination. en
