International Policy Work

Delivering expertise around the world

As well as working extensively within the UK we have been privileged to share our expertise and knowledge internationally.

We continue to work with broadcasters, regulators, agencies and civil authorities around the world on a wide range of issues from regulating elections to auditing public service broadcasters and establishing regulatory frameworks. Our founder, Louise McMurchie, is also a designated expert on media regulation to the Council of Europe.
