They have recently open the call for applications for the Oxford Media Policy Summer Institute which will be held at Jesus College, Oxford on 1-12 August 2022  After a two-year break due to covid, we are looking forward to welcome participants and speakers back in Oxford the first two weeks of August. Join us to discuss contemporary issues of global media policy over breakfast, during seminars and on long walks through the Oxford countryside!

The course for 2022 will focus on Technology and Policy During Times of Crisis.  We will examine key issues in media law and policy- topics may include AI and online content moderation of extreme speech; internet shutdowns during elections and conflict; public diplomacy in a time of mis/disinformation; big data and humanitarian interventions; social media and migration; and innovation in the global south. With the participation of speakers from around the world, we will be exploring media policy in current events such as the escalating crisis in Ukraine, media development under the Taliban in Afghanistan, and online hate speech and conflict in Ethiopia.  We will also use our 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, we will have speakers from across Oxford as well as prominent guests from policy and government, and the private sector.   

The tuition fee is £1,800
