2011 Annenberg-Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute
July 4-15, 2011
Oxford, UK

Strengthening Independent Media in Bosnia and Herzegovina (SIM) Fellowships


Internews and the Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania are pleased to announce the 13th annual Annenberg-Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute, to be held from July 4 - 15, 2011 at the University of Oxford.

The annual Summer Institute brings together young scholars and regulators to discuss important recent trends in technology, international politics and development and its influence on media policy. Students come from around the world; countries represented at previous Summer Institutes include Jordan, Italy, Thailand, Kenya, China, Brazil, Egypt, Nigeria and Russia, among others.

This year the Summer Institute will also focus on media governance and strategic communication in conflict and post-conflict environments including Sudan, Somalia and Bosnia. At the same time, the successful curriculum that has been the foundation of the Summer Institute over the years will continue, with sessions covering topics such as media and economic/social development, freedom of information, internet regulation and convergence. Part of the course will be devoted to new developments in comparative approaches to regulation, looking at Ofcom in the UK and other agencies, including examples from the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Two Internews fellowships, covering tuition, travel, and accommodation will be awarded. Each fellow is expected to publish a policy-relevant article after completion of the summer institute.
