CALL FOR PROPOSALS: DIGITAL THREATS TO DEMOCRACY

Deadline: 3 February 2019 | The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) has opened up a request for proposals for their Digital Threats to Democracy workshop. The workshop will be held in New York City with Cristian Vaccari (Loughborough University). The workshop aims to explore the impact of the rise of digital media on politics by asking three key sets of questions.

First, what insights can we glean from comparing liberal democracies to one another?

Second, what lessons can we learn from the experiences of countries where liberal and democratic norms cannot be taken for granted?

Thirdly, how do existing political and media institutions shape the political impact of, and responses to, digital disruptions and threats?

When: 13-14 June 2019
