2013 – The New Frontier: Policy & Politics in the Age of the Internet
Over the past two decades, the Internet has had a profound impact on social, economic, and political activity across the world. In the past ten years, we have witnessed radical changes in the realms political organization, privacy, development, and cyber-security.
The 2013 GPPI Conference will examine these issues, with panels discussions featuring experts on new defense threats, online privacy, global development issues, and the impact of social media on political and social advocacy.
No other policy program in the U.S. gathers together such an inspiring community of students, scholars, and specialists as the Georgetown Public Policy Institute (GPPI). Each year, GPPI students work together planning this annual public policy conference, bringing distinguished academics and policymakers to Washington, DC to discuss the most pressing and complex policy issues of the day.
This day-long event also provides a unique opportunity for current policy experts to address and hear from the next generation of policy professionals. GPPI’s Annual Policy Conference attracts speakers and a diverse audience from the nation’s top policy schools, non-profit, and government organizations, in addition to members of the Georgetown and D.C. policy communities.
Each year, nearly 200 GPPI students, Consortium school students, policymakers and DC community members gather to attend the Conference. Past speakers have included Peter Orszag and Michael Chertoff and past themes have ranged from Youth Policy to Economic Recovery. We expect this year’s event to build on our past successes and attract even more attention from the Washington policy community.
