The World Affairs Council is proud to present Rebecca MacKinnon, author of Consent of the Networked and co-founder of Global Voices, who will deliver a talk on the complex and often hidden power dynamics among governments, corporations, and citizens in cyberspace.

Ms. MacKinnon draws upon two decades of experiences as an international journalist, co-founder of the citizen media network Global Voices, Chinese Internet censorship expert, and Internet freedom activist to argue that unless we fight for our digital rights we will ultimately lose out physical rights and freedoms. Join us to learn more about the Great Firewall of China, the war for India's Internet and how social media as played a role in recent revolutions.
