The Impact of Floods of Information on Democracy

Many people today are suffering from a crisis of identity. The open world appears ever more complicated, there is a surfeit of information and people are losing their grasp on it. Is this the cause of a falloff in trust in traditional institutions and democracy? And how is this connected with growing calls for strong leaders? Come and debate these issues.

The event is being held in cooperation with the Institute for Christian Democratic Politics and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.

„For the real question is whether the brighter future is really always so distant. What if, on the contrary, it has benn here for a long time already, and only our own blindness and weakness has prevented us from seeing it around us and within us, and kept us from developing it.“

Václav Havel:
Power of the Powerless – samizdat essay, October 1978
