The 2011 Club de Madrid annual conference: Digital Technologies for 21st Century Democracy

The 2011 Club de Madrid annual conference is entitled Digital Technologies for 21st Century Democracy.

The conference, held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City on November 8th and 9th, brings together more than 40 democratic former heads of state to discuss the impact of communication technologies and social media on democratic development worldwide.

The day and a half conference brings together an impressive list of names to analyse how information and network technologies are influencing and changing the world. It aims to take an “in-depth look at the opportunities and challenges posed by the increasingly complex relationships between governments, citizens and communication technologies – particularly as we aim for greater liberties and democracies that deliver.”

The Club de Madrid – an independent non profit organisation composed of more than 80 democratic former Presidents and Prime Ministers – will bring together political and business leaders, policy makers and scholars to the event. The full list of speakers is detailed on the Club de Madrid website: http://www.clubmadrid.org/2011conference/?page_id=973
