Globalisation, Convergence and European Telecommunciations Regulation
'For policy analysts, the transformation of European public policies since the nineties has become an exceptionally challenging process in which actors and institutions operate at multiple levels combining old and new loyalties, playing traditional and innovative political games. This is an excellent book that introduces the reader to these complexities taking into account recent academic debates about policy making in Europe, and analyses the configuration of a telecommunications regulatory regime in Europe at different levels. the book reviews the recent policy changes towards the opening of telecommunications markets in Europe, considering different analytical perspectives. Globalization and domestic pressures are both regarded as relevant factors impacting on European arenas, and Europeanization processes are carefully examined in detail within these contexts. In sum, for all those who aim to understand recent developments in European telecommunications policy, this book will make for necessary reading.' - Jacint Jordana, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the complex interrelationship between technological change, globalisation, 'Europeanisation', national institutional structures, and the transfer of ideas in the reform of European telecommunications regulation.
