The International Telecommunications Regime: Domestic Preferences And Regime Change
This study examines the evolution of the international regime in telecommunications with the main objective of furthering our understanding of the process of regime transformation. The dominant theories of international relations - realism and institutional liberalism specify how states with shared interests use institutions to realize joint gains and to minimize the possibility of defection. But these theories have little to say about when states will attempt to change the objectives that lead them to create the international institution in the first place. The main goal of this book is to investigate and test the assumption that domestic politics by themselves can explain the dynamics of regime creation, evolution and change as it happened within the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).
