In recent years, we have seen how profound technological changes have had important political consequences, not always aligned with the values of democratic societies, something that might lead to the question of whether technology represents a threat rather than a force for good. Three experts will talk about matters linked to democratic security in the context of dizzying technological change: Ha-Joon Chang (South Korea), who lectures in Economics at Cambridge and writer of several books including the recent Economics: The User’s Guide; Thomas Porcher (France), economist and author of Traité d’économie hérétique; and Carissa Véliz (United Kingdom), lecturer in Philosophy at the Institute for Ethics in AI and author of the book Privacy is Power. In conversation with Eduardo Rabasa.
Simultaneous interpretation from English to Spanish available
What do democratic processes and their institutions mean for citizens? Do we know what the concept of democracy means, and where it comes from? What role does legislation play? We talk to experts about the rights, duties and benefits of living within a democratic system. With Graciela Báez Ricárdez, Ismael Carvallo Robledo and Juan Jesús Garza Onofre in conversation with Pascal Beltrán del Río.
