The International Communication Section of ISA hosted a special one-day pre-conference to ISA 2016 in Atlanta, GA on March 15, 2016:
Two overlapping trends highlight the first decade and a half of the 21st Century: information abundance and the growing ubiquity of mobile communication devices. While it is often claimed that these developments have facilitated political uprisings and revolutions, there is much debate over whether they have increased the world’s peace and security. This pre-conference explored this important question at the international, state and individual levels. Keynote speakers included: Professors Robert Entman (George Washington University), Lene Hansen (University of Copenhagen), Steven Livingston (George Washington University) and Phil Seib (University of Southern California).
Location: Georgia State University, Department of Communication, 8th Floor, Twenty-five Park Place, Atlanta, GA 30303 (approximately 15 minutes walk from the Hilton, Atlanta).
