British journalists discuss ‘Who Governs Us? Are media the masters, politicians their servant?’ at RISJ panel at Alumni Weekend

The Institute's panel discussion at Oxford University's first ever alumni reunion weekend 15-16 September brought together senior British journalists in a stimulating – and often humorous – discussion among themselves and with Oxford alumni from around the world. Chaired by Professor Vernon Bogdanor, the panel featured Michael Crick, BBC Newsnight and well-known author of political biographies; Dominic Lawson, columnist of The Independent and former editor of The Spectator and The Sunday Telegraph; Edward Lucas, deputy editor of the international section of The Economist and specialist on central and eastern Europe; and Samir Shah, member of the executive board of the BBC and CEO of Juniper TV.
