As India recovers from a national election and marches on to several state elections, Amber Sinha, lawyer and policy analyst at the Centre for Internet and Society – Access To Knowledge, attempts to dissect this very question in his first book The Networked Public: How Social Media is Changing Democracy with a unique focus on what this means for the future of Indian democracy.

Amber will be in conversation with Vidushi Marda and Arindrajit Basu to discuss the rich array of themes discussed in this fascinating novel. From Walter Lippmann to Tim Berners-Lee; from ‘yellow journalism’ to ‘echo chambers’; from Cambridge Analytica to ‘Digital India’, the evening will walk you through the fascinating individuals, concepts and phenomena that are critical to understanding and safeguarding the future of democracy in India, before it is too late.
