Technology changes the world and our societies at a fast pace. Societies and individuals can benefit in all manner of ways through access to knowledge, people and organizations on a local, community and global level. Society, public and private sectors have established that digital is a need to have.
However, we are in a position today, in this Digital Age, where Technology has outstripped our legal and standards framework. Furthermore, the digital ecosystems and the users are currently not resilient and not future-proof, yet.
At this Holland Pavilion Mini-seminar, we will discuss related challenges such as cyberbullying, hate speech, social engineering, fake news, and lack of accountability regarding personal and societal integrity on the internet, and ask the audience to contribute to global thinking and policy about accountability and democracy on the Internet, where the bounties of internet meet with challenges, conflicts and human & societal values.
This meet-up is co-organised with the Institute for Accountability & Internet Democracy based in The Hague.
