Future Politics: living together in a world transformed by tech

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 6th Nov 2018

Jamie Susskind will discuss the publication of his latest book, Future Politics: Living Together in a World Transformed by Tech.

At this event, Jamie will discuss how digital technology, from AI to virtual reality, will transform politics and society. He will mention how digital technology will be used to exert control by the state and by big tech firms. This talk will challenge the audience to rethink the meaning of democracy and justice, freedom and equality, power, and property. The great political debate of the last century was about how much of our collective life should be determined by the state and what should be left to the market and civil society. In the future, the question will be how far our lives should be directed and controlled by powerful digital systems - and on what terms? 

Jamie Susskind (@jamiesusskind) is an author, speaker, and practising barrister. A past Fellow of Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society, he studied history and politics at Magdalen College, Oxford, graduating first in his year before turning to the law.

Tony Travers is the Associate Dean of LSE’s School of Public Policy and a Professor in the Department of Government.
