Internet, Politics, Policy 2010 Conference: Deadlines / Keynotes / Poster Prize


The Oxford Internet Institute (University of Oxford) is pleased to announce that speakers for the 'Internet, Politics, Policy 2010' Conference (16-17 Sept 2010, Oxford, UK) will include:

Prof. Arthur Lupia, University of Michigan.

A leading scholar on voting, civic competence, parliamentary governance and political communication, his research has clarified our understanding of how information and institutions affect policy and politics, and how people make decisions when they lack information.

Prof. Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.

A legal scholar specialising in the role of information in a networked economy, his most recent book 'Delete: The Virtue of Forgetting in the Digital Age' has received major attention worldwide.

Prof. Patrick Dunleavy, London School of Economics.

One of the UK's most important political scientists, and author of books in the field such as 'Theories of the Democratic State' (with J.Dryzek), his work with the LSE Public Policy Group includes detailed analyses of public sector productivity, citizen redress, policy evaluation, and e-government.

The conference will subject the relationship between the Internet, Politics and Policy to multi-disciplinary scrutiny. We welcome paper submissions that report on innovative research into any aspect of the impact of the Internet on public policy and / or politics. We also welcome suggestions from people who would like to organise panel sessions.

The conference will be organised in twin tracks: the Politics track will consider the use of the Internet by political organizations, examining the impact on policy of (for example) online interest group activity and political mobilization, e-voting, political parties and campaigning and e-government. The Policy track will look at policy responses to Internet-driven social change, including e-health, on-line education, cybercrime, security, privacy and digital inclusion. Plenary sessions will merge these tracks, investigating the intersection of policy and politics and the Internet.

The conference is convened by the OII in partnership with the European Consortium of Political Research (ECPR), the journal Policy and Internet, and the Policy Studies Organization (PSO).
