About the speakers
A legal scholar specialising in the role of information in a networked economy, Viktor Mayer-Schönberger’s most recent book ‘Delete: The Virtue of Forgetting in the Digital Age’ has received major attention worldwide.
One of the UK’s most important political scientists, and author of books in the field such as ‘Theories of the Democratic State’ (with J.Dryzek), Patrick Dunleavy’s work with the LSE Public Policy Group includes detailed analyses of public sector productivity, citizen redress, policy evaluation, and e-government.
A leading scholar on voting, civic competence, parliamentary governance and political communication, Arthur Lupia’s research has clarified our understanding of how information and institutions affect policy and politics, and how people make decisions when they lack information.
