Media Policy and Globalization

This chapter provides a broad overview of the shifts in communication policy as the nation-state's regulatory capacity is reconfigured in the context of global integration. It locates current dilemmas and tensions associated with the global neoliberal information economy to earlier experiences of international inequality, specifically in relation to the postcolonial developmental state. It makes the argument that normative claims for social justice and democratic contestation over the very terms of global communication policy must be re-imagined around questions of recognition, redistribution and representation.

Keywords:   Postcolonial State, Neoliberalism, Social Justice, Redistribution, Recognition
