About the lecture

The digital age – whether we think of it as the historic development of internet search and access to information, the rise of social media and concentration of power in a small number of companies, the emergent world of automation and artificial intelligence in realms from social welfare to military force to everything else, the integration of digital technology into every aspect of our lives, or something else – has been both a bulwark for citizen engagement in public affairs and a threat to democratic institutions.

How should we be thinking about and bolstering democracy in this age of technology’s dominance? What is democracy in the digital age? What are the challenges to it? How does human rights online relate to broader themes of democracy? Do we need a theory for democracy in the digital age?
