DigiMeddle – Kidnapping Democracy in the New Digital Age

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session is intended to be a high-level dynamic panel on the misuse of digital tools and social media, with the goal of swaying public opinion and skewing elections. This discussion is particularly important when considering the recent scandal of Cambridge Analytica in the US presidential elections, and the suspicions of foreign influence in political campaigns around the World. The objective of this session is to draw attention to recent events, as well as discuss possible ways to tackle the issue and thus reduce corruption-risks in the Democratic process.
