Leye Adenle: Disrupting Governance: Democracy and leadership in a digital world
Tuesday 6th November 2018. The Percival Lecture Theatre, Ambleside campus
A project management consultant and information technology specialist, who also writes crime fiction, thinks that traditional models of governance are overdue for digital disruption. In a digital world where companies and foreign governments influence election results and referendums, should we be rethinking the possibility of having free and fair elections, or should we be doing away with elections altogether? Is there even a need for elected leaders in a digital world of artificial intelligence and automation?
