The Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy (PCMLP) at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies is a research and policy programme that brings together scholars, policymakers and practitioners to study contemporary issues in global media law and policy. We have a particular interest in understanding media and governance in transitioning and fragile states. We strive to do this from different perspectives and we emphasize the importance of the culture and values of all the actors, both local and international.
