      Abstract

      This paper evaluates the EU’s influence in shaping the global governance for telecommunications and the Internet. Through analyzing EU behavior within an actorness framework, we demonstrate how the external opportunity structure and the EU’s internal environment has impacted on its ability to exert and maximize its presence in order to meet its goals and aims in these two very different sub-sectors of global communications in terms of evolution and development. Such a comparison of EU actorness, we argue, is revealing in terms of uncovering the underlying factors and conditions that allow the EU to influence two important and dynamic communications sub-sectors.
