Information Politics

Law and policy are at the heart of all information and communication industries. The extent to which governments intervene can have a tremendous impact on the development of industry as well as its evolution. Access to services, market competition, speech and privacy protections, surveillance practices, intellectual property, content and cultural policy and a host of other policy issues fuel some of the most heated debates in the discipline. Our CDMS researchers engage in a variety of these issues, investigating policymaking processes, the policies themselves and the resulting impact on industry, government, non-governmental organizations and the general public.
