Course description[edit]

A professional or academic involved in the telecommunications industry cannot overlook one of its central characteristics -- that it is a regulated industry. This course introduces students to some of the traditional and contemporary media and telecommunication policy/regulatory debates. A broader and deeper understanding of these issues will help students to become better-informed professionals with the ability to analyze phenomena in this industry and contextualize them in a broad framework. The course will establish for its students the context for regulation, its justifications, history, structure, principles, standards, technological challenges, economic pressures, and legal solutions. Students will study regulatory concepts in their broadest sense and at the same time will be exposed to specific contemporary and historical issues faced by the industry and debated among practitioners and regulators alike.
