Annenberg-Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute 2014
The Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania and the Programme for Comparative Media Law and Policy at the University of Oxford (PCMLP) are pleased to invite applications to the 16th annual Annenberg-Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute, to be held from Monday, June 30 to Friday, July 11, 2013 at the University of Oxford.
For the past sixteen years, the Annenberg-Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute has brought together academics, lawyers, regulators, and activists from around the world for two weeks to discuss important recent trends in technology and international politics and the influence that these developments have on global media law, policy, and freedom of expression. This year, in addition to our regular curriculum which provides an overview on the fundamentals of comparative media policy, the program will have a special focus on issues related to the global politics of the Internet. Participants and speakers will analyze the evolution of processes that affect both domestic and international internet policies, the relationship between national efforts and international policy formations, and the role of corporations, governments, and civil society in internet policy and governance debates.
Applications are welcomed from students and practitioners working in communications, media, law, policy, regulation, and technology. We are especially interested in applicants with specific research projects focusing on issues surrounding global internet policy. A select number of full and partial scholarships are available.
