Digital Revolution and the Information Society: ICT regulatory policy in Vietnam under the influence of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)

Since 1990s, the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) have rapidly changed under different socio-economic circumstances and have greatly affected how governments of ASEAN countries come up with ICT regulatory policies. Reviewing policies of these countries, it can be seen that they have been drafted with a regional mindset: to promote the harmony among members and to form regional associations in hope of stimulating cross-border cooperation and market development.
This thesis project focuses on the historical and legal aspects of ICT regulatory policies, the emergence of the development and cooperation programs as well as the visions of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. It will explore the discourses and different implementations of regional regulations that are essential to the understanding of regional governance. It will additionally consider how the State of Vietnam is responsible for bringing ICT programs in play on a large scale, in the context of modernization and technological innovation to promote its information society.
In other words, the key research question is:
How do the influences of ASEAN translate into political practices and regulation of ICT in Vietnam?
In this context, the thesis is theoretically based on the principle of regionalism regulator, particularly on the idea that the policy can be conceptualized as a territorial political system taking place in the institutional space of the member state. The proposed research methods are developed so as to justify the hypothesis proposed by historical and legal approaches. For research methods, we suggest the use of content analysis method and case study. The data sources of this study include ICT-related policies, speeches, official documents and legal texts supported by ASEAN and Vietnam between 2005 and 2015. The purposes of the research are to explore how regulation policies of ICT are made and issued in connection with the visions and procedures of ASEAN, and how does Vietnamese government intervenes to promote ICT innovation. Ultimately, the objective is to understand how and through which process the regional communalities and states intervened in social and economic structures to carryout and promote the changes through ICT deployment.
