What happens with our central democratic values like freedom, equality and truth in the digital society? Are we living in times that strengthen democracy by expanding participation and interaction or do we rather witness democracy’s downfall through fragmentation and acceleration? Are citizens empowered by more inclusive participatory means or are they just a pawn in the hands of the new digital forces? How does the public sphere fulfill its function of forming a societal self-understanding in times of hate speech and fake news? Who is responsible for realizing what society expects both of and in the internet? Is facebook just a media company – and how does traditional media need to develop itself?

Prof. Dr. Christoph Neuberger will join the discussion online from Germany.
The lecture is moderated and explained by Dr. Trần Nguyên Khang and Dr. Nguyễn Thị Thúy Hằng.
This event is a part of Lecture Series: "DIGITAL SOCIETY", produced by Alexander von Humboldt INSTITUTE FOR Internet & Society (HIIG) and the German Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb). This project is promoted by Social Life.
