E-Society/Digital Society Seminar

In societies as culturally and geographically as diverse as Estonia and India, the digital revolution is having profound effects on everyday life, transforming how people learn, work, travel, and access healthcare, natural resources and communication networks. The e-society presents many challenges, involving risks and opportunities. In this third seminar in the Academy series on International Evidence-Based Policy supported by Routledge, Taylor and Francis Group, delegates will explore how innovation can result from cooperation between researchers and policymakers. Contributors focus particularly on developments in web science, online technologies, e-governance, e-health and children’s rights.
