Politics and Privacy in a Digital World

The Harris School of Public Policy, the UChicago Center for Effective Government (CEG) Working Group on Digital Political Media & Democracy, and Campaigns & Elections invite you to a panel discussion on Politics and Privacy in a Digital World.

It’s not just corporations that are using your personal data. Political campaigns are using it, too. The websites you visit. The products and services you buy. The connections you make. Even your interests and hobbies (do you like organic food? how about action movies?). Increasingly, high tech political campaigns and advocacy groups are using this information to decide which messages to send to which narrowly defined groups of voters. But what risks does this new digital world of politics present? And what rights should individuals have within it? This panel will explore privacy issues in today’s politics, addressing everything from who should own your data to what campaigns should be allowed to do with it.

The Harris School of Public Policy, the UChicago Center for Effective Government (CEG) Working Group on Digital Political Media & Democracy, and Campaigns & Elections invite you to a panel discussion on Politics and Privacy in a Digital World.
