PROGRAMME FOR COMPARATIVE MEDIA LAW & POLICY

The Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy (PCMLP) at Oxford University was founded by Professor Monroe Price and is part of the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies.

PCMLP provides a sophisticated and nuanced understanding of the playing out of human rights debates in media systems and the impact of media changes on democratic values and economic development. PCMLP is also the UNESCO Chair in Communications Law and Policy for the United Kingdom and manages the Media Know How Project, which provides and disseminates information on British and other European media law and policies that can be used to help develop and reform aspects of Russian media law and practice.

PCMLP also serves as a partner on the annual Annenberg-Oxford Summer Institute in Global Media Policy.
