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 researchers, academics, and practitioners for two weeks of scholarship on a range of media issues. The annual summer institute brings together young scholars, media lawyers, practitioners, and activists for two weeks to discuss important recent trends in technology, international politics and development and its influence on media policy. Participants come from around the world; countries represented at previous summer institutes include Myanmar, Bosnia and Herzegonia, Iran, Kenya, China, Brazil, Egypt, Nigeria, Jordan, Italy, Iran, Colombia, El Salvador, among others.

This year the summer institute seeks, as part of the cohort, researchers and academics (PhD candidates and early career academics, for example), who will come with a research project related to topics such as media and democracy, public service broadcasting, Internet policy and politics, ICTs and governance/peacebuilding, monitoring and evaluation of media development programs, the media’s role in conflict and post-conflict environments, strategic communications, as well as other topics.

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. Applications are welcomed from students and practitioners working in communications, media, law, policy, regulation, and technology.

A long-term goal of this program is to help broaden and expand the pool of talented young scholars committed to careers in media, law and other disciplines in our global network. Annenberg-Oxford alumni continue to engage in the program and collaborate through network ties that are furthered throughout the years.
