    Forty-seven years ago, Jean d’Arcy, the father of the right to communicate (RTC) argued that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights will have to include a more extensive right than the right to information. He asserted, “This is the angle from which the future development of communications will have to be considered if it is to be fully understood” (d’Arcy, 1969: 1). By: Aliaa Dakroury
