Summary:
========
This event will explore the shifts in power and influence facilitated by the advent of large-scale digital connectivity, in relations between states, governments, individuals and the private sector.

Description:
==========
Is the internet fundamentally changing the face of politics?

Increased connectivity has changed state-to-state relationships and relations between governments, individuals and the private sector. Patterns of economic interaction and the nature, size and scope of the global economy are being transformed.

Join policy-makers, business leaders, expert netizens and activists to discuss the key issues that come with increased connectivity:
• How will the next 2 billion internet users affect the demand for services, products and methods of delivery?
• What can be done to minimize the risks of criminal activity online?
• Where does the balance lie between the benefits of governments and private sector actors having access to 'big data' and threats to privacy and anonymity?
• Will the internet fracture under the pressure of differing state approaches to controlling it?
