The recent Twitter revolutions highlight the role changing communication modes have on democracy. Technology can yield a modern Habermasian public sphere facilitating information sharing, but it can also turn into a digital panopticon open to exploitation. The discussion will focus on the ethical impact of technology on the democratic process as we upgrade to the digitally-enabled Democracy 2.0. This discussion takes place in cooperation with the Beacon Project of the International Republican Institute, the National Endowment for Democracy and CEVRO.
