Event description

Description

The majority of the world’s countries are now governed by democratic regimes. And yet concerns remain that democracy’s spread is now stalling and that even within so-called ‘democratic’ nations, the conditions necessary for fair and accountable government find themselves increasingly under threat. Technological advances have had an irrevocable effect on the political landscape, with algorithms and recommendation systems now used to influence political decision-making, and big data set to become a powerful tool in changing electoral decisions.

Added to this, voter turn-out across the globe has hit the lowest figure in a generation and a deep mistrust in politicians and government has found greater voice.

So what do these changes mean for the future of democracy and democratic nations? And do the mechanisms of democracy require a re-evaluation in light of recent elections and referendums? What will democracy look like in the future?

Join the conversation at the TEDxBerlinSalon "Democracy" on Sunday, July 2nd from 4.00 pm - registration starts at 3.00 pm! Find more information on the program on www.tedxberlin.de
