About the Program
Evgeny Morozov, contributing editor to Foreign Policy, argues that the Internet may do less to democratize states and more to maintain dictators and hurt dissidents. The author examines the ways governments are using the internet to maintain political power such as China's "50 cent party," which pays its 280,000 members 50 cents for each pro-government comment left online. Evgeny Morozov discusses his book in conversation with Susan Glasser, editor-in-chief of Foreign Policy at the New America Foundation in Washington, D.C.
Evgeny Morozov is a contributing editor to Foreign Policy and Boston Review. His writing has appeared in several publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, and the Economist. For more information, visit his website, evgenymorozov.com.
