About the Series

In the digital era, political institutions, activities and relationships are increasingly mediated and shaped by the Internet. No aspect of political life remains unaffected, with those in positions of political influence and power often facing new and unexpected challenges in dealing with the turbulent wake left by the Internet's disruptive technologies. Building on the model of the classic 'Media and Politics' seminars established by the great David Butler, this annual series will bring senior politicians, civil servants and political commentators to the OII for frank and insightful discussions about their first-hand experience of digital-era governance 'at the coal-face'.
