The 5th Polis Journalism Conference on the topic of Transparency and Accountability was the biggest and most successful yet. The LSE now hosts the UK's most important annual gathering of international journalists.

There were at least 700 attendees throughout the day to watch more than 40 speakers from the media industry. Highlights of the conference included keynotes by Alan Rusbridger, Editor of the Guardian and Ian Katz, Editor of BBC Newsnight in conversation with Krishnan Guru-Murthy of Channel 4 News. Other panellists included Cathy Newman of Channel 4 News, Tom Giles of BBC Panorama and Luke Lewis, Editor of Buzzfeed UK. The conference also generated significant buzz on social media including 661 tweets by over 400 Twitter users and our conference hashtag #polis14 was trending on twitter for the entire day. Podcasts and video of the conference will be available on the Polis blog, along with photos of the conference and interviews with conference speakers.
