How will government and politics be transformed by technology?

Tuesday 19 February 2019, 18:00 - 19:00

The Institute for Government was delighted to welcome Jamie Susskind to discuss his new book Future Politics: Living together in a World Transformed by Tech.

In his book, he argues that those who control digital technology – mainly technology firms and the state – will increasingly use data to control our lives. He suggests that the government must take advantage of the digital age to strengthen democracy.

In conversation with Gavin Freeguard, Programme Director and Head of Data and Transparency, at the Institute for Government, they discussed what these issues mean for policymakers.
