The Annenberg Public Policy Center examines the public policy implications of changes in technology and communication. It conducts research on issues of technology and policy, privacy, equity, international communications and infrastructure.
The Center has studied the changing role of the Internet, in particular the Internet and privacy. Its researchers have examined the role of television in shaping health policy, the portrayal of the medical profession on television and the role of women leaders in emerging communication fields. The Center has co-sponsored conferences on risk assessment, the use of new technologies to provide wider access to health information, online journalism and hyperlinks and society.
