Abstract

This Paper takes a closer look at the liberalization dynamics in telecommunications in EU. More over, we focus on selected issues of regulating telecommunications in convergent markets. Of particularly interest is the political and institutional division of labour between national regulators and supranational regulators. The Analysis raises key issues of NGN-regulation and the role of innovation dynamics. We present new ideas for the regulation of digital markets - within a Schumpeterian perspective of innovation dynamics. The issue of international/transatlantic cooperation and regulation also is highlighted. There is considerable overregulation in the EU with can be explained by approaches from New Political Economy. Finally, we present proposals for consistent regulations in e-communications.
