The Governance of Network Industries

Edited by Rolf W. Kunneke, John Groenewegen and Jean-François Auger ()

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: Infrastructures are subject to substantial readjustments of governance structures, often labeled as liberalization, privatization or re-regulation. This affects all traditional infrastructure sectors including communications, energy, transport and water. This study highlights and illustrates some of the major challenges for readjusting the governance of network industries from an economic, institutional, political and technological perspective. The three parts of the book address the institutional design of infrastructures, the role of technology in different sectors and actor behaviour.
