event: The New African Democracy: Information Technology and Political Participation
Dates:  May 1st and 2nd, 2012  
Location: The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Washington DC  

Information and communications technologies (ICTs) are helping to advance political participation and social movements in Africa.  The use of ICTs for democratic participation and government accountability offer exciting new possibilities that are changing politics and development in Sub-Saharan Africa.  The recent North African revolutions have shown that rising ICT connectivity can facilitate political and social movements, placing new pressures and demands on autocracies and democracies alike. A major conference organized by the African Studies Program at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies will examine these trends and their implications. The meeting will bring together experts and policymakers to discuss challenges and opportunities for African politics in the digital age.

Civic Media Session: "Civic Disobedience" | MIT Center for Future Civic Media
May 5, 5 - 7 p.m. EST. "Is this wave of civic disobedience best explained as a reaction to economic and political conditions in each country? The viral spread of Tunisian unrest infecting other vulnerable nations? Or are changes in the media and communications environment — near-universal mobile phone use, social media, the internet, satellite television — enabling popular protest in a way we've not seen before? Is civic disobedience easier, or perhaps more effective, in a connected age?"
