The 2023 Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute is open for applications!
Dramatic changes caused by much heralded AI developments, ongoing transformations in geopolitics, major shifts in formulations of freedom of expression, and the exigencies of violence, conflict, and human rights—all combine to make this summer’s edition of the Oxford Media Policy Institute exceptionally timely and engaging.
In the tradition of the Institute, now in its 20th year, this year’s edition – Technology and Policy in Turbulent Times: Whose Rights and Whose Responsibilities? – brings together regulators, graduate students, academics, NGOs and others to discuss cutting-edge issues around technology law and policy globally, with a focus on governance and inequalities. Topics will include AI and online content moderation; internet shutdowns during elections and conflict; AI for social good and human rights; surveillance and smart cities; inequalities and infrastructure; and the regulation of online platforms and social media, particularly in the global south. With the participation of speakers from around the world, the course will be exploring media policy in current events such as the continuing crisis in Ukraine, social media and elections in Latin America, and internet shutdowns in India. The University of Oxford will also use its vantage point from the UK to discuss emerging issues in the EU and engage with local actors including Ofcom and the BBC. As with institutes in the past, the course will have speakers from across Oxford, as well as prominent guests from policy and government, and the private sector.
For over two decades the Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute has built a vibrant network of alumni around the world. Join us to discuss contemporary issues of global media policy over breakfast, during seminars, and on long walks through the Oxford countryside!
