Somin a Panelist in Northwestern Discussion of Democracy and Technology

On March 4, Professor Ilya Somin took part in a panel discussion at the Northwestern University School of Law on the implications of accelerating technological development for democracy.

The panel's focus was Northwestern law professor John McGinnis' forthcoming book, Accelerating Democracy, in which the author argues that the Internet and other new technologies can improve democratic decision making by increasing the flow of information to voters and policy makers.

McGinnis, Somin and Northwestern law professor Robert Bennett provided commentary on the book at the event, which was part of the sixth annual symposium sponsored by the Northwestern Journal of Technology and Intellectual Property.
