> held from July 4 - 15, 2011 at the University of Oxford.
> The annual Summer Institute brings together young scholars and regulators to
> discuss important recent trends in technology, international politics and
> development and its influence on media policy.  Students come from around the
> world; countries represented at previous Summer Institutes include Jordan,
> Italy, Thailand, Kenya, China, Brazil, Egypt, Nigeria and Russia, among
> others. 
> This year the Summer Institute will also focus on media governance and
> strategic communication in conflict and post-conflict environments including
> Sudan, Somalia and Bosnia.  At the same time, the successful curriculum that
> has been the foundation of the Summer Institute over the years will continue,
> with sessions covering topics such as media and economic/social development,
> freedom of information, internet regulation and convergence. Part of the
> course will be devoted to new developments in comparative approaches to
> regulation, looking at Ofcom in the UK and other agencies, including examples
> from the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
> The seminar brings together a wide range of participants from around the globe
> and provides them with an environment in which significant policy issues are
> seriously discussed. The richness of the experience comes from exposure to a
> variety of speakers and from the discussions among participants themselves.
