> > The Information Society (TIS) special issue on
> > SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF PUBLIC POLICY IN THE INFORMATION AGE
> > Edited by Milton Mueller (Syracuse University) and Becky Lentz (Ford
> > Foundation)
> > If the 1990s was the decade of market liberalization in media and
> > telecommunication industries worldwide, how will the next decade be
> > defined? What and who will set the agenda for communication and
> > policy?
> > Current policy discourse is focused on relatively narrow regulatory or

> > intellectual property rights, interconnection and competition in
> > telecommunications, and media concentration. While recognizing the
> > importance of issue-specific policy research, this special issue would

> > transformed economic and political environment. Papers that bring
> > insights from multiple areas, such as political science, sociology,
> > economics, critical geography, information studies, urban studies,
> > studies, communications and cultural studies, are especially welcome.
> > Ideally, papers would shed light on current developments and place them
> > perspective that has relevance for future public policy directions.
> > As more specific examples of the type of papers/research we seek:
> > * Analyses of long-term change in media and telecommunications
> > that draw upon any relevant literature of institutional change (e.g.,
> > New Institutional Economics, the Old Institutional Economics, social
> > movement theory, sociological theories of organizational repertoires and
> > innovation).
> > * Papers exploring changes in the way citizens, consumers, business
> > or other constituencies are organizing to influence communication and
> > information policy, including new analyses of how so-called global civil
> > society or transnational advocacy networks are involved in communication
> > and information issues;
> > * Papers that assess the impact of globalization on communication and
> > information policies, and explore the relationship between national
> > policies, constituencies, and institutions on the one hand and
> > international organizations and constituencies on the other.
> > * How conceptions of the public interest in communication and
> > policy have changed in response to new technologies, new industry
> > conditions and political and social developments. Are new theories of
> > public interest in communications and information policy being formed?
> > are normative principles responding to the changing landscape?
> > * Explorations of the role of ideas and scholarly research in shaping,
> > fomenting or resisting changes in policy.
> > Manuscripts prepared according to the TIS guidelines should be submitted
> > October 1, 2003.
> > Please send the manuscripts to: Milton Mueller <mueller at syr.edu>.
> > are encouraged to discuss their ideas with the guest editors.
