BPS SEMINAR:

BRITISH POLITICS AND THE PRESS

British Politics Society has the pleasure of inviting members and friends to a seminar on British politics and the press.

Time: Wednesday 9 April 2014 at 12:15-13:15
Place: Uglebo, Sophus Bugge Building, University of Oslo

British newspapers find themselves in a cross-pressure between decreasing readership, loss of public trust and political ambitions for tighter regulation.
Criminal activities surrounding News of the World are the subject of an ongoing court process and have given the British tabloid press as a whole a severe blow. Meanwhile it is becoming increasingly difficult for the quality newspapers to survive in an ever-tougher market, and newspapers across the board suffer from a loss of trust among politicians and the public alike.

       

              
Kjersti Løken Stavrum, secretary general of the Norwegian Press Association and Ulf Andenæs, former commentator in Aftenposten, will debate current and future challenges for the British press. The discussion will be led by Øivind Bratberg, scholarly responsible of the British Politics Society.

All welcome - please sign up to the event by sending us an e-mail.
