February 12, 2015: Annenberg's Project for Advanced Research in Global Communication presented a panel discussion featuring Jaclyn Kerr, Maria Repnikova, and Bilge Yesil. Using case studies of Russia, China, and Turkey, panelists explored the cat and mouse game of media control in non-democratic contexts. Beyond illuminating the specific dynamics of each case, the panel drew parallels and distinctions in control and resistance mechanisms across the three cases. It explored and reflected on the recent tendencies of cross-authoritarian diffusion of information management, illustrating how the three regimes and the critical journalists in them may be learning from one another and what that means for our understanding of media in non-democratic contexts.
