Citizenship in a Networked Age

“Citizenship in a Networked Age” embraces the positive potential of technology while also addressing its deep implications for society.

“How will we, as citizens, make moral decisions in a networked age? What privileges and responsibilities will we hold? Can artificial intelligence contribute to enriched citizenship and democracy?

University of Oxford scholars Andrew Briggs and Dominic Burbidge are tackling these questions in their new project, “Citizenship in a Networked Age.” Supported by a grant from Templeton World Charity Foundation, their team will release a 2020 report that explores how humans can uphold ideals of citizenship in an ever-evolving technological landscape.

Scientific advances have brought myriad opportunities for enhancing health, communication, and wellbeing. But as we learned from recent events like Russian hacking in 2016 presidential election, technology can also pose dangers to fruitful civic engagement.

“Citizenship in a Networked Age” embraces the positive potential of technology while also addressing its deep implications for society. Drawing on the best of scientific insight and spiritual wisdom, it aims to promote promoting human flourishing on a global scale.”
