Abstract

The thesis examines the role, efficacy and influence of the five national English-language independent film and television production sector unions in the Canadian broadcasting policy network. While labour is typically classified as a civil society organization within policy network studies, this thesis will examine the blanket applicability of this typology in analyzing labour’s engagement with issues that involve both their vested economic/industrial interests as well as broader social/cultural goals, using the unions’ engagement with the issue of Canadian dramatic programming from 1998 to present as a case study.
