“Democracy on the Net – tangled up Politics”

Written on March 23, 2012 by Begoña González-Cuesta in News

Next Monday March 26th, the IE University Chapter Room (Campus Segovia) will hold the first sessions about “Democracy on the Net – tangled up Politics”.
The Internet boom and new technologies have led to a new profile of citizen – an interconnected citizen who is part of the information society, who seeks and who demands a dialogue with the politicians who are represented by. Political parties, governments and activists now have the chance to profit from a direct relationship with their voters. The way of communicating on the Net has changed due to the creation of new Internet resources and all actors involved in Politics have no option but to know about the new digital codes.
The event @politicaenredad (#politicaenredada) will start at 5:00 p.m. It will be a forum to discuss the opportunities and threats of the e-Government, the importance of the personal brand, the role of the new politicians and the differences in doing politics since the boom of social media.
This event has been organized by the students in the 4th year of the BA in Communication – IE University. All the sessions will be in Spanish.
We hope you can join us and enjoy our sessions!
