Democracy in the Digital Age: Addressing Online Harms
The rise of digital media and technology has transformed how we engage in democratic processes and public debate. In Canada and around the world, digital threats are contributing to polarizing societies and weakening institutions. That’s why Canada 2020 launched Democracy in the Digital Age, a new series challenging Canadians to rethink their approach to defending our democratic institutions. Listen to a conversation between Minister Steven Guilbeault, Canada’s Minister of Canadian Heritage, in conversation with Anja Karadeglija, Parliamentary Reporter at the National Post, exploring Canada’s approach to reducing the harms of digital technology on democracy and public life, as well as a follow up panel with Laura Tribe, Executive Director of Open Media, Will Perrin, Trustee at Carnegie Trust UK, and Vivek Krishnamurthy, the Samuelson-Glushko Professor of Law and Director of Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic.
