Abstract: The level of globalization that we witness today and other economic realities compels Europe to take more effective measures for higher economic growth. Moreover, public services need to be improved and modernized. So Europe’s future depends on creating a knowledge society with transforming it through Information and Communication Technologies. These new technologies can serve in areas like education, health care, transport, manufacturing, environmental protection and so on. Furthermore, these new technologies do not only play auxiliary roles in the fields they are used but they also configure the general structure of those fields. Telecommunications is perhaps the most important part of the ICT sector. So with this thesis, I hope to increase the understanding of ICT and eventually the telecommunications policies of the European Union. For this purpose, Normative Theory of Regulation, Economic Theory of Regulation, Institutionalist Theory of Regulations are used for the theoretical foundation. For the proceeding chapters, main resource materials primarily were articles, reports of the EU and the OECD. The thesis shows that the regulatory implications for the telecommunications sector (also the other ICT) and the governance initiatives of the European Union are highly overlapping since they benefit the same fundamental conceptions. Moreover, the implications of the Union’s policy framework and the regulations of the European Union for the sector seem to be benefited by the all stakeholders even though there have been serious delays and some failures in the initial polices. This shows that the implications are relevant and effective and can meet the majority of the expectations. Moreover, the policies implemented and the general direction of the regulatory framework for the telecommunications seems to be encouraging and effective.
