The Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for Communication (ASC) is a leader in international education, training, and research in the fields of media development, strategic communication, and comparative media law and policy. It affords students, academics, lawyers, regulators, civil society representatives and practitioners the opportunity to critically evaluate and discuss comparative global and communications issues.

CGCS draws on various disciplines to explore public policy issues and the way media and globalization intersect with the changing nature of states. The CGCS team brings a combination of practical experience advising on and implementing innovative communication programs and research projects in restrictive, transitional, conflict and post-conflict environments, with particular expertise in the areas of media law and policy, media and democratization, monitoring and evaluation of media interventions, and the design and implementation of training and capacity building programs.

CGCS also serves as a hub for an extensive international network of key organizations and individuals, providing opportunities for emerging scholars, advocates, and media professionals through global conferences and institutes.
