BRIDGING THE DIGITAL DIVIDE:

EQUALITY IN THE INFORMATION AGE

 

Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

Yeshiva University

 

Nov. 15, 2000

 

DESCRIPTION

 

The digital revolution has transformed the lives of many, but also has left untouched the lives of many others. As a result, a large segment of the world population misses out on the tremendous political, social, economic, educational, and career opportunities created by the digital revolution. This gap between the information haves and have-nots is commonly referred to as the digital divide. Since the mid-1990s, the digital divide has received considerable attention in international forums, in presidential debates, and among corporate leaders. In light of the alarming disparities between the information haves and have-nots, the Howard M. Squadron Program in Law, Media and Society at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University selected the digital divide as the topic for its Second Squadron Symposium on Internet, Law & Society.
