Speakers' Corner Trust
Bryn is currently working with Speakers’ Corner Trust on a project to study and improve the standard of political debate on the web. A symposium co-organised with the Oxford Internet Institute will take place in 2016 and a series of filmed debates on a range of public policy issues is also in the pipeline. Prior to working with Speakers’ Corner Trust, Bryn completed a doctorate in Classics at the University of Oxford, and is now preparing his thesis for publication with the Oxford University Press. He also worked as a researcher at the Oxford English Dictionary. As of October 2015 he is training to be a barrister.
