Welcome to IPRP's


The Information Policy Research Program [IPRP] is an on-going program of research examining key public policy issues, notably access, and privacy. These issues are studied particularly in relation to rapid Canadian developments in information/communications infrastructure and the 'knowledge-based economy/society' generally.

Starting in 1995, IPRP has been serving as the organizational hub for the following series of projects, each with its own research focus, team members and funders. This site documents the activities of current, live projects. For information on past projects, please visit the archive site of IPRP.

IPRP research is the work of many people, mainly faculty and graduate students at the Faculty of Information Studies, University of Toronto, in collaboration with academic and non-academic researchers across Canada as well abroad. For questions or comments about IPRP or any of its projects, please contact Prof. Andrew Clement.
