Description

Once debates on regulation tended to focus upon content. Today the situation is more complicated. The proliferation of new, supposedly unregulated media like the Internet, the opening up of broadcasting through digital, and the increasingly international nature of the broadcasting medium itself mean that a whole series of legal, economic and technological issues now take precedent. Above all else, it is possible , or even desirable, to regulate at all?

These papers from the 30th University of Manchester International Broadcasting Symposium feature contributions from major figures in the worlds of broadcasting and academia, and a glimpse into a future that will certainly affect us all.including a selection of major international papers.
