Registration is Closed

Time & Location

About the event

Western democracies are under new pressures from digital technologies. Whereas before, the internet was seen as an exciting new platform to increase political engagement, encourage the participation of previously underrepresented groups, and improve innovation, now we understand that new forms of communication have created new arenas of power.

This workshop will focus on the way that technology is changing democracy and the theories of privacy.

Key takeaways:

  • Introduction to theories of democracy
  • Exploration of the role of the individual in democracies and why privacy is instrumental in democracies
  • Workshopping through different thought experiments and scenario planning
  • Recommendations for future actions to take in your organisation

This will be a live workshop with up to 20 people, facilitated by Alice Thwaite. The workshop will take place on Zoom. Links will be mailed to you before the workshop start time.
