About Event

In an increasingly interconnected world, we have witnessed how democracy can be undermined by the very connectivity and democratization of technology we thought will be a great equalizer. Governments launching targeted attacks, tech companies personalizing the population's news diets to the point of incompatible world views and wannabe dictators using these methods to spread fear and gain power.

India in particular, as the world's largest young democracy, faces a huge challenge in this area. Es more and more Indians come online, the quality and veracity of Indian online content will become more and more important.

Join our discussion on the future of Indian Democracy in the age of disinformation.

 

  • Will India be resilient enough to combat the rise of online manipulation?

  • What would be the consequences of an Indian population with beliefs and opinions distorted by malicious actors?

  • Is democracy on such a large scale even compatible with today's technological power structures?

 

Experts from tech, media and governance share their views on this important topic and invite you to join the discussion.
