The Institutional Framework of the Telecommunications Sector in Britain and France 1969–1979: Divergence, Reform, and Standstill
This chapter analyzes two sets of issues concerning the institutional framework of telecommunications between the late 1960s and the end of the 1970s. First, it looks at institutional reform, and in particular, whether Britain and France maintained their long-standing institutional frameworks in the face of domestic pressures for change, the processes of change, and the conditions for institutional modification. A second area of investigation centres on cross-national comparison and looks at whether, from a position of relative institutional similarity, but facing common external pressures for change, the two countries followed similar or different institutional paths, and the reasons for any differences.
