The 17th annual Annenberg-Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute, will be held at the University of Oxford from Monday, June 29 to Friday, July 10, 2015. The Annenberg-Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute provides researchers, academics, practitioners, media lawyers, and activists with an intensive two week curriculum that covers a range of media issues. Over the past seventeen years, Annenberg-Oxford has brought participants from all around the world to discuss the influence of trends in development, international politics, and technology on media policy.
At this year’s institute, during the first week we will explore the actors and institutions involved in shaping global media policy, with a specific focus on pressing issues such as the tensions between hate speech and freedom of expression as well as media interventions in conflict and post-conflict contexts. During this week a visit to OfCom in London provides participants with an opportunity to explore media and freedom of expression issues from a regulatory perspective. During the second week we will examine the complex global struggle over the future of the Internet and its governance. Through case studies we will explore key Internet policy issues such as online censorship, Internet governance structures and debates, and the Google Right to Be Forgotten case.
