Internet & Society: The Trans-Atlantic Research Future | Internet Democracy Initiative

May 10 @ 9:30 am6:30 pm

In May 2024, the Internet Democracy Initiative will host an Internet and Society Conference at the Northeastern University-London campus. Like the IDI, the conference will focus on the role of the internet in structuring democracy, society, and markets with emphasis on areas that have widespread information and social media implications. Conference sessions will feature academic, industry, and government experts engaging with one another across five thematic areas:

  1. misinformation,
  2. media narratives,
  3. cyber governance and cyber resilience,
  4. AI governance and regulations, and
  5. data access and ethics.

The goal of the conference is to further collaborations that can bring about the types of changes that the IDI imagines. Across the sessions, speakers and participants will be asked to consider mechanisms to ensure that historically excluded voices are represented, amplified, and considered in data structures and decision-making processes.
