Country Case Studies

Country Case Studies by Region and Topic

 

Telecommunication case studies provide an analysis of modern day issues in telecommunications — and how they have been addressed in individual countries. They are aimed at a wide audience, ranging from regulators, to corporate managers, to academics. Research for the case studies is conducted in collaboration with government officials, consultants and industry players. The resultant study sets the context, defines the ‘issues’, analyses the various models or strategies that might be employed, describes current approaches, identifies obstacles and assesses past and current experiences. The goals are to raise awareness among government officials, regulators and industry players in developing countries and to provide policy-makers and other players with in-depth substantive information.
