Big Tech and Democracy: Policy Approaches to Address Tech Platforms

Thu., Mar. 21, 2019 | 9:30am - 2:30pm

Technology has reached a critical juncture in American society. The unfettered optimism of recent decades is now tempered through rising concerns over privacy and security, the impact of disinformation campaigns, and increasing calls for digital accountability. It is clear that the 116th Congress will face pressure to shape technological innovation through policies that protect and serve the best interests of their constituents.

The Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center together with the Technology and Public Purpose (TAPP) Project at HKS’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs is hosting a workshop on Capitol Hill for Congressional staffers focused on identifying and discussing policy approaches to the dilemmas of big tech platforms.
