22nd September, 2011 from 6-8 pm in
The Graham Wallas Room, 5th Floor, Old Building, LSE, Houghton St, WC1
THE MAIN SPEAKER AT THE MEETING IS MARTIN MOORE, OF THE MEDIA STANDARDS TRUST AND THE HACKED OFF CAMPAIGN. He will speak about the campaign’s work, and will then participate in a discussion with members.
The meeting has been set up as an ‘open mike’ meeting for colleagues to talk briefly on current issues of: media regulation; press freedom; privacy; phone hacking; the relationship between press, politics and police; colleagues’ own research and writing on these and other related issues, all in discussion with Martin. Be prepared to speak briefly (5 minutes maximum) if you have something to say.
The newly formed CCMR (Co-ordinating COmmittee for Media Reform), which has some overlap of members with Meccsa Policy, has a steering group meeting beforehand and we hope some of this group can attend the Policy Network meeting. It would be good if somebody from the committee could speak briefly about its goals.
There are a couple of useful weblinks to articles by members that colleagues may be interested to read:
