The workshop, taking place from Feb 26 to March 3 in Kampala, seeks applications from young scholars, activists, lawyers, and technologists working across Africa for an intensive practicum on using methodologically rigorous, data-driven, and contextually appropriate research for advocacy.
The workshop seeks to provide a venue for stakeholders in Latin America and the Caribbean to consolidate existing advocacy and research ventures with more robust analytical and evidence-based approaches. The program brings together young scholars, activists, lawyers, and technologists for an intensive five-day practicum on using methodologically rigorous, data-driven, and contextually appropriate research for advocacy.
The Annenberg School for Communication at the 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 19th annual Annenberg-Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute, to be held from Monday, June 27 to Friday, July 8, 2016 at the University of Oxford.
