What Should Democracies Know?

On December 8, 2016, the program on Science, Technology, and Society at the Harvard Kennedy School convened a panel titled “What Should Democracies Know? Post-election Reflections.” The panelists, representing five different disciplinary takes on the titular provocation were then asked to revisit their responses and present them as blog posts, collected in this series.

A video of the December 2016 event is available here.
