Abstract

This article examines and sets the agenda for engaging issues of information, society and justice in a turbulent world. Its captures the political and intellectual precursors to the current global development and information order. We argue that the current atmosphere, chaotic and unjust as it is, contains both challenge and opportunities, particularly for countries and communities that are often constructed as victims of an unjust world. We then identify the key agenda for research, activism and debate for scholars, activists and development practitioners, as exemplified by the principles, visions and objectives of a newly formed international peer-review journal – Information, Society and Justice – based in London.
