Abstract

What are the remaining “non-digital” areas of Politics? Citizenship and collective action today are digitally organized, online and offline. Electoral campaigns are affected by the extensive use of social media. Voting became electronic in several countries. Journalism faces changes in the production and dissemination of news. What was once the sole government affair, such as diplomacy, norm- and policy-making, is profoundly transforming with demands for more democracy and inclusiveness. Conversely, who could still claim that digital technologies’ design and uses are neutral? In an era of big data and algorithmic learning, profiling and predictive decision-making, governments and increasingly private actors are imposing norms and exercising power – through surveillance, censorship, and subtle or less subtle political influencing and manipulation - over citizens, organizations and institutions, including (other) governments. Panels and Papers will explore all dimensions of the relationship between Politics and the Digital, whether they focus on empirical or theoretical perspectives of before mentioned fields and other. Comparative analyses and focus on non-Western geopolitical areas are presented, including also methodological contributions on new teaching and research challenges.
