In Week 6 students discuss two recent inquiries into communication regulation in
Australia: the Finkelstein Inquiry and the Convergence Review. Following an in-class
discussion students write a report investigating the debates, focusing on one of the
inquiries. The Report should analyse the inquiry, its findings and the wider public debate
that it generated, drawing on at least two submissions submitted by organisations.
Materials from the two inquries are loaded onto UTSOnline. Full documentation,
