How do we communicate ethically in an increasingly digital age? With social media platforms and search engines increasingly under fire for circulating fake news, propaganda and misinformation, urgent questions about corporate social responsibility need to be addressed. What role must tech companies take in fostering reliable communication? And should our social networks be regulated in the same manner as other media? Join our expert panel as they discuss these issues.

This event is generously supported by Robin and Jill Lovelock

It is being held to mark the 25-year anniversary of Baroness Onora O’Neill’s election to the British Academy’s Fellowship and her outstanding contribution to philosophy and public intellectual life.

As our public events are free, not everyone who registers for tickets attends. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
