SNF Dialogues and the SNF Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University held on Wednesday, June 24 an online discussion about the potential benefits technology holds for democracy and any limits to its potential, during the Summer Nostos Festival.
Referring to the role of democracy, George Zarkadakis mentioned that “We need an enhanced liberal democracy that takes into account citizen participation in a much more significant way in order to regain trust”.
Regarding the role of democracy she stated that “The challenge for us in thinking about democracy is that the move to the universal is not always a move that provides equal liberties to all people”.
The discussion was moderated by journalist and SNF Dialogues Executive Director Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou and SNF Agora Institute director Hahrie Han.
The SNF Dialogues are curated and moderated by Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou.
