The section invites contributions (proposals for papers, posters or panels) in any area of (broadly understood) European media and communication law, regulation and policy, including historical, comparative and philosophical approaches to this domain. We welcome critical methodologies and analyses, as well as discussions on new ways of thinking about policy and law in the media, communication and cultural industries. We also welcome empirical studies of policy or the policy making process as well as evidence aimed at contributing to debates on current policy issues, especially those that use interdisciplinary approaches and push the boundaries of established work.
