My colleagues in Programme in Comparative Media Law & Policy (PCMLP) at the University of Oxford’s Centre for Socio-Legal Studies are doing some fantastic work understanding the relationship between media and governance in transitional and weak states. This term, under the inspired leadership of Iginio Gagliardone, they are running a seminar series entitled Media and Governance in Developing Countries: Networks of Power and Strategic Narratives that will be of great interest to many DiA readers. There have already been a number of really interesting seminars that have discussed everything from public debates on Ugandan radio to the way that local radio stations function in Kibera, Kenya. Rather generously, they have made many of their seminars available as free video downloads.
