Some people dream of success. We make it happen.
The Annenberg-Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute, held annually since 2004, brings together young scholars and regulators from around the world to discuss important recent trends in technology and its influence on information policy.
The 2013 institute focused on media governance in key regional areas as well as strategic communication in conflict and post- conflcit and transitional environments. Sessions covered global media policy issues such as media and economic/ social development, freedom of information, Internet regulation, and censorship issues.
“I felt as though I was already doing my advanced degree course in media law and policy while fulfilling my career dreams. Meeting with, listening to and talking with people who have made such remarkable differences in their communities with their work related to media and development was so amazing!
‐Helen Mayelle, AnOx ’12, Communications and Media Officer Refugee Law Project Uganda
“My expectations were exceeded. I learned the importance of media convergence, digitalization, internet governance, state relations and their impact on media regulatory frameworks. Most importantly, I learned the centrally important role that the Internet has assumed in contemporary global media environments.”
