The Informed Citizen in Digital Society

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganisation and participation in workshop, seminar, course


The information citizen has become a basic principle of modern democracy, however, it seems like only very few of us have actually engaged in the question of what it exactly means to be an informed citizen and more importantly, what an informed citizen means: Informed about what and by whom? These are pressing questions in contemporary society, not at least because the model of participatory democracy explicitly emphasizes the role of the informed citizen as a central one to a functioning democracy. In the panel debate we will question this fundamental idea of being informed.
