Global Platforms, Global Issues: Social Media's Influence Across the Atlantic & Beyond

Platforms, Networks, and New Power Technology’s Impact on Politics, Policy, and Elections

Since the 2016 election, much of the conversation about technology’s impact has been focused on America, but these global platforms are at the heart of some of the most pivotal societal changes around the world. From the halls of the European Commission to the corridors of the African Union, the world's decision-makers are grappling to figure out how to regulate and engage with platform technologies. Join Adam and Elizabeth Linder, founder of Facebook's Politics & Government division for the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region, founder, and CEO of the Conversational Century, and currently, a Senior Consulting Fellow at London-based Chatham House to discuss the international perspective on technology platforms.
