IPPR Oxford Media Convention 2021

Reform media, renew democracy

A strong independent media is crucial to the proper functioning of our democratic system. It shapes how we understand and relate to the world around us, and it should equip citizens to make informed, sound democratic decisions.  

Covid-19 marks the start of a ’decade of disruption’; with climate change, globalisation and automation set to reshape our society. The media can play a crucial role in helping our democratic societies navigate these trends. But we need to embrace reform and renewal in the media in order for this to happen.    

This summer, the IPPR Oxford Media Convention convened participants to shape a renewed vision for the role of the media in a healthy democracy. We explored the steps needed to build a stronger, more sustainable media ecosystem to help provide stability in the decades ahead.
