When technology, media and globalisation conspire: Old threats, new prospects

This presentation was part of the panel discussion on globalised media and ICT systems and structures and their interrelationship with fundamentalism and militarism organised by Isis International-Manila during the 2004 World Social Forum (Mumbai, India). The author contends that the global economy supported by ICTs stands upon the intersection of the crumbling proletariat of the North and the off-shore proletariat of the South, as seen in issues of labour, media and militarism. The feminisation of labour and the conditions of female labour have been underscored in globalisation literature, as being structural to the new international division of labour brought on by the new ICTs.
