Journalism and responsibility: the Leveson inquiry and press regulation

The hacking scandal and the Leveson inquiry have exposed a responsibility gap in British journalism. When things went wrong, it emerged that the reporter could not be held responsible, nor could the editor and nor could the newspaper proprietor. As for regulation, it might have been designed to avoid allocating responsibility. This can be fixed.

The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception in the Picton Room.
