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, 2014 at the University of Oxford.
For the past sixteen years, the Annenberg-Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute has brought together young scholars, media lawyers, practitioners, regulators, and activists for two weeks to discuss important recent trends in technology and international politics and the influence that these developments have on global media policy. The objective of the program is to help prepare, motivate, encourage and support students and practitioners who aspire to pursue a career in communications media, may it be in academia, business or in policy-related fields. Participants come from around the world; countries represented at previous summer institutes include Myanmar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iran, Kenya, China, Brazil, Egypt, Nigeria, Jordan, Italy, Iran, Colombia, El Salvador, among others.
Annenberg-Oxford alumni continue to engage in the program and collaborate through network ties that are furthered throughout the years. To learn more about past participants, speakers, and curricula, please click here.
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 and politics, media and peace-building, freedom of expression, and media development.
For questions, please email Laura Schwartz-Henderson. Limited funding is available for a select number of participants, although applicants are encouraged to seek alternative funding sources.
