Governing European Communications: From Unification to Coordination (Critical Media Studies)by Maria Michalis
Synopses & Reviews
The liberalization of communications markets, especially from the 1980s onward, has witnessed increased regulatory activity within but also above the national state. By examining the European case concentrating on the European Union, the most advanced example of regionalism Governing European Communications enhances understanding of the trend toward above-the-national-state regulation, its, drivers and its limitations. Analyzing in detail the origins, dynamics, and evolution of European-level communications governance in the postwar era, Michalis offers a single, comprehensive, and up-to-date account of telecommunications and television policies and regulation and their technological convergence.
Governing European Communications provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the emergence, dynamics, and evolution of European-level communications governance in the post-war era, focusing on telecommunications and television policies and regulation, and their technological convergence. Concentrating on the EU, the book embeds governance within broader economic and political developments in a global context and demonstrates that European governance has been more about the character rather than the level of regulation.
