Wednesday 28 September – 6pm-7pm – Chatham House
People, Politics & Power: How Digitization is Changing Our World

Richard Sambrooke (former director of BBC News and BBC World Service) will chair this event at Chatham House. Suddenly a seemingly powerless individual can, through interactive global networks, effectively challenge powerful individuals and institutions. The speaker, an award-winning writer, journalist and freedom of information activist, will argue that those in the establishment may see this new empowerment of individuals as dangerous and destabilizing, and as a threat to national security, believing in consequence that the internet must be controlled. Others view this phenomenon as providing a gateway to a transformed political arena. The speaker will contend that the greater danger to humanity is not free speech but the concentration of power.
