"Verstehen Sie?" – Disput im Stadtgarten

Vom Like Button zur Wahlurne - Politische Partizipation im Zeitalter von Social Media.

The Dutch political scientist Jan van Deth highlights the relevance of political participation of citizens for a democratic society: "When you say democracy, you mean participation". However, it is often unclear what exactly is meant by the emotionally charged term political participation. Within the framework of this event we want to address this topic from a scientific and practical perspective. The question is whether and how political participation on the net works and what effects it has. Bloggers, YouTuber and Instagram stars use the net as a tool to inform about political content and thus influence young people significantly.
Why are established parties lagging behind? And why do fake news and right-wing content spread much faster on the net? Questions of possibilities, effects and impacts of political participation via social media are the focus of this event.
