The People Vs Tech: How the Internet is Killing Democracy (and how we save it) is the uncompromising subtitle from bestselling author, Jamie Bartlett’s new book.

This event is part of the Web 20 series in partnership with the British Council NI. This series focuses on the impact of the web on our lives, 30 years since Tim Berners-Lee laid out his vision for what would become the World Wide Web.
