Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

8 Scopus citations


The Israeli Minister of Communications appointed on 4 February 2014 a tenmember expert committee to propose a regulatory framework for the future of commercial television (broadcast and cable) in light of the imminent introduction of over the top (OTT) audio-visual services. In this study, the authors describe the process influencing the committee’s final report. By comparing between the committee’s interim report and its final report, the study sheds light on the way regulation is designed in an era of transition. The reader will find in this study a detailed description of the different actors’ responses to new regulation proposals and will have the opportunity to observe how and if these reactions influenced the work of public servants.
