Communication Law and Policy

Mission:

Click to view division website

The Communication Law and Policy Division is interested in research and analysis of law, regulation, and policy that deals with information, communication, and culture. Defining policy broadly, the division includes within its purview:  principles that should or do underlie law and regulation, proposals for new law and regulation, and the  programs and institutions through which policy is implemented.    

Every step of the legal process is of interest:  policy implications of the results of research on information, communication, and culture; development of policy proposals; the  nature of policy-making and policy implementation processes; evaluation; effects; and critique.

The division's scope is global, presenting work that focuses on individual nation-states, localities, or regions; comparative studies; and international and global law.  The  Division welcomes work dealing with policy for the medium (the architecture and technologies of the global information infrastructure) as well as the message -- and the  interactions between the two. Since so much decision-making with structural effect now takes place outside of formal legal structures, the Division is also interested in  private sector policy-making.   No theoretical or methodological constraints.
