In einer zunehmend kommunikativ vernetzten Welt gewinnen auch die Regeln für grenzüberschreitende Kommunikation an politischer und gesellschaftlicher Bedeutung. Der Autor konzeptualisiert Globale Medien- und Kommunikationspolitik erstmalig umfassend aus kommunikationswissenschaftlicher Perspektive und gibt einen umfassenden Einblick in die Herausbildung und den Wandel des über 150 Jahre alten Politikfeldes. Die Analyse zeigt, dass sich kommunikationspolitische Entscheidungen auf globaler Ebene seit jeher in einem Spannungsverhältnis zwischen technischen, ökonomischen, kulturellen und sicherheitspolitischen Ansprüchen bewegen, und exemplifiziert die Befunde am Beispiel der ITU. Das Buch bietet einen literaturgesättigten Überblick und entwickelt zugleich eine fundierte theoretisch-konzeptionelle Perspektive auf das Politikfeld. Dadurch eignet es sich gleichermaßen als Grundlagenwerk für Studierende und Lehrende sowie für Forschende, die sich mit Fragen der Kommunikations- und Medienpolitik beschäftigen.

The Internet has been integral to the globalization of a range of goods and production, from intellectual property and scientific research to political discourse and cultural symbols. Yet the ease with which it allows information to flow at a global level presents enormous regulatory challenges. Understanding if, when, and how the law should regulate online, international flows of information requires a firm grasp of past, present, and future patterns of information flow, and their political, economic, social, and cultural consequences. In The Global Flow of Information, specialists from law, economics, public policy, international studies, and other disciplines probe the issues that lie at the intersection of globalization, law, and technology, and pay particular attention to the wider contextual question of Internet regulation in a globalized world. While individual essays examine everything from the pharmaceutical industry to television to “information warfare” against suspected enemies of the state, all contributors address the fundamental question of whether or not the flow of information across national borders can be controlled, and what role the law should play in regulating global information flows.
