Due to the digitalisation of information and the fast development of networks, three industries were
caught in a process of 'convergence', namely telecommunications, computing and broadcasting. They are
now referred to as one: the Communications Industries. This re-shaping of a large part of the market
raises a great many questions for law and policy makers.
IJCLP, the leading online journal on international communications issues, makes use of the prime
medium of 'convergence': the Internet. As an online journal, IJCLP seeks to bring hot news, debated
issues and important policy decisions from reliable expert sources, fast and accessible, to everyone who
might be interested. As an international journal, our primary aim is to bridge international frontiers,
to induce debate on communications law and policy.
