This chapter situates the theoretical framing of the book in literature on media policy, political economy and cultural studies. The chapter positions policy analysis within the study of political institutions as well as the critical approach to media as economic actors. It discusses the context of communication policy within the triangle of market, changing notions and practices of the state towards media and the individual, and the communication technologies. To that, it adds a further layer, the symbolic politics and myth production around media and communication technologies, highlighting the historical specificity of communications policy studies. It also charts out the logic and organization of the remainder of the book.

Keywords:   Media Policy Field, Political Economy, Cultural Studies, French Regulation School, discourses and policy
