CAPURRO, RAFAEL. Intercultural Information Ethics: Foundations and Applications. Signo pensam. [online]. 2009, vol.28, n.55, pp.66-79. ISSN 0120-4823.

This paper aims to examine the present status of the research field intercultural information ethics (IIE) including the foundational debate as well as specific issues that may open new views for research and practice in this field. The present iie debate focuses on a narrow view of the field leaving aside comparative studies with non-digital media as well as with other epochs and cultures. There is an emphasis on the question of privacy but other issues such as online communities, governmentality, gender issues, mobile phones, health care and the digital divide are on the agenda.

Keywords : Culture; Information management; Ethics; Privacy; Information Systems Administration - Moral and ethical aspects; Communication ethics; Nonbook materials; Mass Media and Culture.
