In the left corner - inefficient state institutions, oligarch controlled media outlets and the military invasion from Russia. In the right corner - Ukrainians lacking money but not enthusiasm, expertise and digital literacy to create digital civic initiatives pushing for reforms and providing public service in the spheres where the state fails to deliver. Who are you betting on?

This talk for the 2018 Festival of Ideas, cohosted by the Intellectual Forum, Jesus College and the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages, will describe something Europe hasn’t witnessed before - an emerging digital civil society. It will also discuss how the case study of Ukraine shows that we have previously underestimated the potential of the Internet for democracy.
