Debatt i Lund: Will Digital Destroy or Develop Democracy?

Övrigt, 350-årsjubileum

Debatt i Lund takes on the question of online democracy and social media - is it hurting or helping us?

Expectations on the digital revolution’s democratic potential are high. Many hope for a revitalized democracy where social media will give marginalized groups a growing voice in politics and public debate. But what are the results so far? With accusations of cyber attacks on democratic elections and sophisticated digital strategies used to manipulate voters – is power actually shifting from citizens to a powerful select group of global ’netizens'?

On the panel:

Lawrence Lessig, Harvard University, academic and political activist

Carl Bildt, Former prime minister of Sweden

Marina Svensson, expert on human rights and digital society in China

Amelia Andersdotter, politician (Pirate party) and former member of the European Parlament

Moderator: Andreas Ekström, journalist and author
