newmatilda.com presents a national series of public forums about the internet regulation debate in Australia.
The Federal Government's proposal to block internet sites with a mandatory filter has drawn overwhelming opposition from voices across politics and civil society. So what are the real questions for policy-makers?
These forums explore the ethical, social and political questions raised by government regulation of the internet. With the growing intersection between technology, politics and media, how do existing and proposed classification regimes measure up? Is filtering inevitable? Or are there better ways to regulate the world wide web?
Flinders Street, Melbourne
Tickets for this event are $5. RSVP is essential: enquiries(at)newmatilda.com [Please inc: “Melbourne Forum” in the subject line]
