Digital Politics: Clicktivism, Activism, and the Fight Against Global Poverty

In the last 20 years technology has changed the way people participate in the fight against global poverty: online social participation through social networks, content-sharing websites and mass email campaigns have become the new instruments to engage the public with the work of NGOs and governmental agencies.

In this sessions we will discuss the benefits and the issues of technology-mediated forms of political participation, look at examples of how NGOs have used technology to engage the public to fight poverty (and how effective these campaigns were), and debate if activism and political engagement are actually going all-digital.cal engagement are actually going all-digital.
