(p.3) Global Media and Communication Policy
The Global Community Yearbook of International Law and Jurisprudence 2013, Volume I

Oxford University Press

Global media and communication policy studies is a relatively young field of inquiry within university departments, although it addresses issues that have been of interest to scholars since the earliest days of international communication. Technological innovation, changes in industrial and cultural policy, the liberalization of telecommunication and media markets, and, more recently, the spread of the Internet, have created many challenges for policy makers at the global level. This chapter provides an introduction to the digital environment, discusses factors that are giving rise to turbulence in the policy landscape, and considers the roles of selected global forums in policy debate specifically with respect to trade, intellectual property rights, and Internet governance. The chapter concludes that there is a need to foster inclusive policy institutions and legal frameworks that can be discussed and implemented locally, based on a continuous global debate.

Keywords:   technological innovation, freedom of expression, trade in services, trade in equipment, intellectual property rights, copyright, internet governance
