E-Governance in Antarctica: Internet Technology's Role in Administering a Global Commons
November/December 2006 (vol. 10 no. 6)
pp. 64-68
John E. Gudgel, McGraw-Hill
Internet technology is enabling the governance of geographic areas that were once considered beyond human control. Nowhere on Earth is this more evident than in Antarctica, which is a global commons currently governed under the terms of the Antarctic Treaty. With current concerns over global warming and Antarctica's importance as an environmental barometer, the use of Internet technology is increasingly important to assure that this last frontier is monitored and governed for the greater good.
