FH Podcast: Personal Democracy Forum - Interview with founder, Andrew Rasiej

The Personal Democracy Forum, which Fleishman is co-sponsoring in Europe this year, is the world’s largest conference on how technology is changing politics. This year’s event is taking place in Barcelona on October 4th and 5th, with a great set of speakers, panelists and delegates from the worlds of politics, governance, civil society and business (read more about the programme here.) As part of our involvement, we will be hosting a break-out session in which we will explore the issues of pan-European petitions – in particular the European Citizen’s Initiative, how the web can play a role in expanding its reach and impact, and its potential for altering the balance of power between EU institutions, business and NGOs.

In this month’s podcast, we interview Andrew Rasiej, founder of PdF, who provides some insight into his thinking on the transformative role of technology on politics and governance, the potential for citizen engagement and empowerment, as well as some views on the European perspective, and where business fits in the picture.
