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.
