TECHNOLOGY TO ADVANCE OPEN SOCIETIES

FROM EMPERICAL EVIDENCE TO INTERVENTIONS

Peace is not the absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition of benevolence, confidence, justice.
BARUCH SPINOZA

The Age of Information has led to “leaderless, consensus-driven” movements that can mobilize the masses, and spread disinformation to weaken civil society and government institutions and their ability to make informed decisions.  Artis International Advancing Open Societies Through Technology purpose is to counter these  movements.

 

The Technology To Advance Open Societies program brings together practitioners, academics and technology experts to promote freedom of the press, human and political rights, a market economy, fair elections, transparent and accountable governance, and other fundamental elements of an open society. We work with civil society, media, businesses, and governments to promote open society values and the same time to counter extremists and opportunists who seek to use social media to blame a country’s woes upon foreigners, conspirators, ethnic minorities and other scapegoats.
