Democracy, Public Debate and the Role of Social Media: From a French and Australian Perspective
This event was presented as part of the French Australian Conversations series, launched this year by the Embassy of France in Australia and The Conversation.
Globally the use of social media in politics has dramatically changed the way political campaigns are run and how we access and interact with our elected members. Social media tools have allowed citizens to join together, and petition the government, leveraging their numbers against the influence of affluent and powerful lobbyists.
Professor Arnaud Mercier, lecturer in political communication at University Paris II Panthéon-Assas, explores how social media has influenced public debate in France. He will be joined by experts who will provide an Australian perspective.
