Technology and Democracy

New technologies like artificial intelligence and social media promise to have significant impacts on democracy and democratic governance. New technologies provide new platforms and avenues for civic mobilizational, representation, and resistance, but also create new means for repression, censorship, surveillance, and disinformation.
