The Morningside Post is thrilled to invite you to Policy Making in the Digital Age, a conference that will consider how the Internet and digital technologies are changing policy making and international affairs.

Policy makers, practitioners, students and faculty will come together to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by rapidly developing digital technologies. This comes at a time when the intersections between digital technology and international affairs are increasingly evident, from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s recent speech on internet freedom and the China-Google censorship controversy, to the use of Twitter during the Haiti earthquake and the Iranian elections.

Featured speakers include Richard Boly, Director of the Office of eDiplomacy for the U.S. State Department, and Internet Society trustee  Jonathan Zittrain.
