Cover Page


The article describes various aspects of implementation of international communication in context of global governance. There is a thesis about the expansion and blurring of lines of communication, which makes transnational communication networks. The authors consider global communication as a process and as a communication system. Analyzing models of global governance, it is noted that “global governance” describes the “soft model” of communications regulation. The article describes the process of formation of information and communication models in global governance, in which the functions of information and communication mechanisms of global governance are primarily associated with the development of regulations governing key areas of international cooperation (exchange of information) of state and non-state actors in world politics and economics. The authors conclude that the collaboration of the BRICS countries in the sphere of information and communication models in global governance is very dynamic. The authors analyzed the variety of the formats of communicative capacity through the dialogue, forums, summits, regular meetings of representatives of different areas. Communication activities in the framework of expert and working groups on cooperation in the field of information and communication technologies, international information security are analyzed. The conclusion was made about the necessity of BRICS interaction in the political, economic, scientific, cultural and youth spheres which would strengthen cross-border system to respond to information security threats.
