Conferences / Theme Symposium

A New Cultural Economy Symposium IV

Politics and Collective Action in Modern Open Society

06.09. | 15:00 - 18:00


The Internet enables people to participate without asking permission and provides a voice and the tools of communication to everyone. The “public” has evolved from “subjects” to a semi-conscious “public” to an actively engaged and self-organizing sphere capable of non-violent collective action at a global scale.

In this session, we will discuss how free speech and global voices challenge existing the establishment. We will see examples of the use of advanced communications technologies by activists. We will also discuss how these organizations form and manage themselves.
