Can the Internet Economy Be Governed, and If So, How?

Thursday 1 May, 6.30pm
Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House

Professor William H Melody, a major contributor to the communication policy reform process around the world since its inception, will speak on the management of the internet economy on Thursday 1 May at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Whether the internet economy can be governed, and if so, how, is a key current agenda in public policy, and one that is excluded from the current UK Bill on the regulation of the media and communication industries.

William H Melody is a visiting professor at Media@lse, LSE, the Centre for Information and Communication Technologies, Technical University of Denmark, and the LINK Centre, University of Witwatersrand, South Africa. He is managing director of the multi-university collaborative LIRNE.NET, and editor of the Policy Forum section of the journal Info.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
