Are digital technology and democracy incompatible?

As the Cambridge Analytica scandal unravels on the world stage, we'll be hearing from Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media and bestselling author Jamie Bartlett.

Jamie will be discussing his new book The People vs Tech in which he argues that we must reform democracy and reign in digital disruption within the next twenty years, or risk losing democracy for good.

Hear his twenty radical proposals for how to do this (including dramatic new government policies) and gain a deeper understanding on how the concentration of power, data and control over public space is already affecting our everyday lives.

Jamie Bartlett is the bestselling author of The Dark Net, an examination of the hidden corners of the internet and Radicals: Outsiders Changing the World.
