Description

WebRoots Democracy invites you to an evening seminar entitled:

did russia hack the referendum?

It will be a speaker event taking place at Newspeak House, the community space for political technologists, in Shoreditch.

The Brexit vote sent a shockwave through the political establishment in the UK and across the world, but there have been allegations that foreign states such as Russia tried to influence the vote. These include accusations of thousands of bots being set up to sow discord in order to destablise the European Union. Some Members of Parliament have even called for a judge-led inquiry into the possibility that Russia meddled with the referendum.

But is it all true? And if it is, did it really have an impact on how people voted on Brexit? What can or should be done to guard against social media warfare in the future? Join us to listen, ask questions, and learn on the 5th of January.

Speakers:

Alexander Martin - Technology Reporter, Sky News

Further speakers to be announced.

Spaces are limited and you will need to be on the guestlist in order to attend.
