My research centers on internet governance processes on privacy issues in media, the internet and telecommunication convergence, examining how governmental power operates in culturally described 'open- networked- convergent' structures within China and the EU contexts. Employing a theoretical frame incorporating network theory (Castells, 2009, 2011) and soft power theory, it also examines the relationship between regulators (and government decision-making) and other stakeholders (interplay of/with corporations) and the nexus between these and inter/intra institutional change and governance structures.
