The growing trend toward deregulation in the telecommunications and space sectors is now forcing managers and policymakers to question traditional practices and to search for new responses including new management tools. Devoted to the major policy and management questions facing the telecommunications and space industry, this publication offers practitioners and academics an international forum for the discussion and analysis of key issues relating to telecommunications and space sectors.
Each year, the Telecommunications & Space Journal proposes a selection of articles covering all the major sectors of the industry and dealing with the latest developments in the following areas -- policy and regulation, finance and economics, strategic issues, scope and trends, operations, emerging markets, management, legal materials, and litigation.
