Proper legislations, regulations, and agreements are necessary when an information society promotes wide participation and the utilization of communication and information technologies. The institutional framework is composed not only of the regulations, legislations, and agreements, but also the policy-making bodies concerned with establishing the laws and regulations, as well as the various social and industrial associations that determine the underlying agreements for the construction of organizations and markets. In this chapter, we look into how the components of the institutional framework are able to affect certain issues concerned with technical standards, universal access, and the governance attributed to market liberalization. Our analysis is focused on the extent of (mis)alignment of institutional arrangements.

Keywords:   institutional arrangement, institutional framework, legislation, regulation, agreements, laws, market liberalization, universal access, technical standards
