How Technology Will Transform Society and Politics

Night time at the Houses of Parliament

Technology has not only improved our ability to communicate, it is leading to deep cultural transformation that will redefine how we do politics and what politics and political parties are about. From giving citizens a sense of empowerment to rendering geography less relevant; from giving people the ability to self-organize to ensuring that an elite no longer controls the narrative, profound changes are fueling dissatisfaction with political parties and the political classes. Given the profound societal changes enabled by technology, how do political parties remain relevant? Have they the ability to move beyond their traditional approaches to meet the challenges and opportunities of the evolving cultural paradigms.
