How will government and politics be transformed by technology

Venue: Institute for Government

Date: 19 Feb 2019

Synopsis: The Institute for Government is delighted to welcome Jamie Susskind to discuss his new book Future Politics: Living together in a World Transformed by Tech.


In his book, he argues that those who control digital technology – mainly technology firms and the state – will increasingly use data to control our lives. He suggests that the government must take advantage of the digital age to strengthen democracy.

In conversation with Emma Norris, Director of Research at the Institute for Government, they will discuss what these issues mean for policymakers.
