The Regulation of Electronic Communications in the European Union: Lessons Learned and Remaining Challenges
Dr Marialuisa Costa, ANU Centre for European Studies
Thursday 6 October 2011, 11:00am – 12:30pm
Over the past two decades the regulation of electronic communications in the European Union has undergone significant development. These changes have been motivated by a combination of technological innovations and the adoption of new regulatory strategies consistent with a liberalisation of the sector and the aim of creating an integrated and vigorous market for electronic communications across EU member countries. This seminar will explain and analyse the main changes in the regulatory framework that the EU institutions have created. Several challenges were overcome in the process of developing a harmonised regulatory framework and effective intra-European competition, but other challenges remain. The seminar will discuss the lessons learned, and will identify a number of future regulatory issues that may need to be resolved.
Dr Marialuisa Costa holds a Bachelor of Law (Honours) Cum Laude from Sapienza, University of Rome. She recently completed her PhD in Economic and Market Law at the Scuola Superiore ISUFI (SSI), Department of Euromediterranean School of Law and Politics, University of Lecce. Dr Costa has served as Contributing Writer and Editor of the Legal Encyclopedia at The Institute of Italian Encyclopedia in Treccani. During her stay at the ANU Centre for European Studies she has started a new research project on the extent to which the principle of proportionality may be applied as an effective and appropriate constraint on decision-making in the regulation of electronic communications in Europe and Australia.
