More about the speical issue

The failure at the WCIT meeting in Dubai to reach consensus over updating the International Telecommunication regulations reveals more starkly than ever the growing fault lines in the international governance and regulation of communications. This special issue proposes a scholarly exploration of the topic.

  • Papers are therefore invited on the specific issues raised by WCIT but also on the wider theme of multilateral governance and regulation
  • This could include, for instance, articles on subjects such as the impact of trade negotiations and agreements (regional as well as global/WTO); the impact of the EU jurisdiction (not only within the EU itself, but also in the EEA countries and in countries at various stages of the accession)
  • Or it could encompass a variety of aspects with regard to the ITU (eg the continuing impact of ITU processes and institutions on management of the radio spectrum and satellite orbital characteristics).

Contact the editor Dr Colin Blackman for more information to discuss your proposed paper and abstract.
