Democracy is under attack! Not by communist or socialist ideologies, but by ordinary citizens using social media. Countless online platforms amplify individual voices, enabling greater political participation for everyone, while eroding the foundations of democracy as we know it. Ballots are being replaced by bullhorns. Tweets, hashtags, and Facebook “likes” spread information through the Internet instantaneously. Mass political participation, fueled by the rise of social media, heightens levels of awareness and shapes public opinions, which has a profound impact on democratic beliefs and institutions. Rampant social...

Student activists are headed back to school prepared not only to hit the books, but to hit the streets. While universities around the globe have historically proven to be hotbeds for radicalism, campus conflicts at elite U.S. institutions have been escalating in recent years. And after a tumultuous summer of online and in-person clashes across the country, this year in particular could be a hostile one. University administrations have so far failed to do much in the way of effective conflict management. The Wall Street Journal...

The Kingdom of Bhutan is currently caught in a crisis between its two powerful neighbors, China and India, over the Doklam plateau. As each country tries to assert its supremacy over the other, Indian and Chinese propaganda machines have dominated the conversation, nearly drowning out the Bhutanese narrative throughout the crisis. However, the widespread use of social media and the constant flow of online information have amplified the voice of the Bhutanese people, giving them the ability to reshape the course and outcome of the...

This reflects a growing trend: political and business leaders are being ousted from positions of authority at an alarming rate. The removal of presidents, prime ministers, and top executives is the result of rapidly evolving demographics, shifting cultural attitudes, and social media, which is now rooted in transparency and accountability. This growing...

There is an ongoing shift in power. Widespread social unrest and a growing divide between political leaders and the citizens they serve have devolved into shouting matches on both sides. Social media is now anchored in democracy, which represents the voice of the people and civil society. Governments struggle to manage online discussions, create effective communications strategies, and broadcast narratives that resonate with their constituents. As a result, people have lost confidence in government institutions and no longer trust elected officials. Ineffective governance undermines political stability,...

Despite improved communication technologies and other technical advances, traditional polling continually fails to accurately measure public sentiment or predict election outcomes. Polling fails because it ignores the most critical element that influences voting: identity. In the past year, we’ve been left with our jaws on the floor after surprise election results in the United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, and Colombia - just to name a few. Pollsters around the globe are in serious trouble, as they continue to rely on an outdated approach that...
