During the 1990s and 2000s, in parallel with new media-relatedinitiatives in the US and the Asia-Pacific region, the EU launched itsown information society policies in an effort to become, "the mostcompetitive knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010." In additionto full members, the task of achieving a "European Information Societyfor all" was also expected from candidate countries. The past decadeshave witnessed a number of key initiatives in the form of internationalevents and summits in which questions related with the globalinformation society were addressed.  In Connecting Europe: InformationSociety in the EU and Turkey , Dr. Miyase Christensen explores theevolution of information society efforts in the EU and  Turkey inrelation to the surrounding policy environment, globalization processes.
