Description

Massive changes are taking place all over the world in redefining the relationship between government and public and private institutions. Nowhere is this redefinition more urgent than in communications, where widespread privatisation and deregulation of telecoms and broadcasters has created a need for new modes of corporate governance in the new global marketplace. In Regulated Self-Regulation Wolfgang Schulz and Thorsten Held set out to find answers to key questions relating to the changing role of government in regulating the transnational communications industry and to provide a ‘tool-kit’ for what they call regulated self-regulation applicable across the world.

The authors come up with conclusions that are both original and challenging, suggesting a more modest but nevertheless crucial role for state action in the sector.
