In India, too, people say self-regulation of the media is not enough.
In a panel John Lloyd, T.R. Andhyarujina, Harish Salve and Daya Thussu discussed whether self-regulation can continue to remain a viable way forward for the Indian media.
In October, 2012, the Oxford Indian Society organised a seminar on ‘Can self-regulation continue to remain a viable way forward for the Indian media?’. The panel was chaired by Mr. John Lloyd, Contributing Editor, Financial Times and Director of Journalism, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, Oxford University. The speakers on the panel included Mr. Harish Salve, a Senior Advocate at the Supreme Court of India; Mr. Daya Thussu, Professor of International Communication and Co-Director of India Media Centre, University of Westminster; and Mr.T.R. Andhyarujina, another leading Senior Advocate at the Supreme Court of India.
The panelists deliberated over the norms of propriety in the media and the viability of self-regulation in ensuring an Indian media that is fair, responsible and democratic.
