Technology is making it possible to fundamentally reframe the way we can engage with each other and with the representatives elected to represent us in government, but this potential to redefine governance practices is yet to be fully realized. This panel is a conversation between participants representing tech companies, academia and political campaigns about the future of technology, government and political engagement.
