about

This book examines the process and consequences of telecommunications liberalisation in the context of an ever closer European Union. The creation of a single market for telecommunications and of a wider European single market mirror one another. Telecommunications are also something of a test case for the privatisation process, as this sector has traditionally been a state monopoly.
The volume approaches the European experience from three angles:
* the politics of regulation and the process of liberalisation in the EU (including case studies of the UK, France, and Germany)
* increasing global economic interdependence makes international comparisons essential, and the volume compares the EU experience with that of the Czech Republic, Israel and Thailand
* the consequences of technology and continuous innovation

From Our Editors

Through case studies of the United Kingdom, France and Germany, this book compares the European Union experience with that of the Czech Republic, Israel and Thailand and explores the consequences of technology and continuous innovation. European Telecommunications Liberalisation also discusses telecommunications as a test case for the privatization process in a sector that traditionally has been a state monopoly.
