From the Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy
New Co-ordinator of PCMLP appointed
The Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy, at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford, is pleased to announce that Dr. Nicole Stremlau has been appointed to head PCMLP, with the title of Coordinator. Her research is in the field of media and conflict particularly in Eastern Africa. She recently completed her PhD at the London School of Economics Development Studies Institute. She has directed research and training projects for DFID (the Department for International Development), the Foreign Office and others and recently published an article on public opinion research in conflict zones arising from work in Darfur. Dr Stremlau was previously Director of the Africa programme for the Stanhope Centre for Communications Policy Research, and will take up her new position at PCMLP in January 2009.
PCMLP is interested in sponsoring applicants for the Newton Fellowship. This scheme provides a two year fellowship for early stage post doctoral researchers from anywhere in the world (those already working or studying in the UK are excluded). Applicants in the final stages of their PhD will be considered, provided their degree will be completed by the start of the fellowship in September 2009.
