Citizen Lab Director Ron Deibert joined the Talking Politics podcast to discuss “Power in the Digital Age” with David Runciman and Catherine Carr. Deibert discusses how autocratic regimes take advantage of the latest technology for their political ends. He discusses the changing landscape surrounding technology, particularly given that government security apparatus has been turned on citizens after events like 9/11, the Snowden revelations, and the Arab Spring.
