Former fellows look back...and forward
Between 1995 and 2015, The Wincott Foundation sponsored a fellowship programme through which journalists from the ex-Communist countries of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union spent one or two terms at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism in the University of Oxford. In all, 38 journalists attended the programme.
Following the closing of the programme, the Foundation invited former fellows to write an essay on their experience at Oxford, their careers and the evolution of business media in their countries. Their essays are published here.
