Electronic highways are emerging; the information society is in the making. Who is building the infrastructure, and whose interests are to be taken into account in establishing the electronic superhighway? How will it affect democracy, political debate, and public administration? What applications can we expect, and what changes should be made in European law in reaction to such new technological developments as interactive multimedia or the globalization of the telecommunications infrastructure?

We can look forward to consumer-oriented electronic services, but can we retain our privacy in such open surroundings? How will the allure of electronic commerce alter present regulations in such diverse areas as cryptography policy, civil liability, and the levying of taxes? This work sets out administrative and legal implications for political scientists, lawyers, as well as other professionals working on electronic highways.
