In a little more than a generation, the Internet has transformed ways of communicating, transacting and accessing knowledge. For the earliest adapters, the Internet promised a new home of the mind and offered new possibilities for addressing the challenges facing the world. Yet, mounting concerns over the impact of globalization, rising social and cultural divisions, and the spread of false or misleading information online all raise an uncomfortable, pressing question: is the Internet eliminating divisions in society, or is it accentuating them?
As part of our 25th anniversary, we will host an event with the Royal Institute of International Affairs at Chatham House to address this critical question.
DATE: May 11, 2017
TIME: 12:30 – 14:00 BST (UTC+1)
LOCATION: Chatham House, 10 St James’s Square, London, UK, SW1Y 4LE
