The Palgrave Global Media Policy and Business series is calling for proposals.
The series has published to date 15 volumes since its launch in 2012. Concentrating on the social, cultural, political, economic, institutional and technological changes arising from the globalisation of media and communications industries, the series considers the impact of these changes on matters of business practice, regulation and policy, and social outcomes.
Focusing on issues of media convergence, industry concentration, and new communications practices, the series analyses the tensions between systems based on national decision-making and publicly-oriented participatory structures and a more global perspective demarcated by commercialization, privatization and monopolization. Based on a multi-disciplinary approach, the series tackles three key questions:
- To what extent do new media developments require changes in regulatory philosophy and objectives?
- To what extent do new technologies and changing media consumption require changes in business practices and models?
- And to what extent do privatization, globalization and commercialization alter the creative freedom, cultural and political diversity, and public accountability of media enterprises?
If you have a book idea or proposal, please send to series editor Petros Iosifidis P.Iosifidis(at)city.ac.uk.
