INTERNET, DEMOCRACIA E MOVIMENTOS SOCIAOS: TRANSFORMAÇÃO DA AÇÃO POLÍTICA NO CIBERESPAÇO

Internet, democracy and social movements: transformations of political action in cyberspace

Data: 28 de julho de 2020 – 10hrs (Brasil), 11 hrs (EAST Time)
Date: July 28thy, 2020 – 10 am (Brazil), 11 am (EAST Time)

Este evento é o primeiro de uma série de debates, co-organizados pela Escola de Governança da Internet e pelo grupo de pesquisa Resocie (Instituto de Ciência Política-UnB), que abordarão as transformações da ação política no ciberespaço e seus impactos para a democracia.

Quando movimentos sociais começaram a incorporar a Internet aos seus repertórios de ação, há três décadas, havia a expectativa de que as novas tecnologias teriam efeitos democratizantes, ao proporcionar a atores menos poderosos uma nova arena a partir da qual exercer sua voz. Trinta anos depois, há um amplo debate sobre se essa expectativa foi ou não alcançada. O evento “Internet, democracia e movimentos sociais: transformações da ação política no ciberespaço” discutirá os dilemas da conformação da ação política democrática com o uso instrumental da internet. A partir de casos de movimentos sociais em diferentes regiões do mundo – Ásia, América Latina e Europa – os painelistas irão discutir como os atores da sociedade civil têm utilizado as novas tecnologias digitais e quais são os seus impactos para a vida democrática. 

This is the first of a series of webinars that are being co-organized by the Internet Governance School of the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee and the research group Rethinking Relations between Society and the State, of the Political Science Institute, at the University of Brasilia. 

This event brings together three renowned scholars on social movements to discuss the increased relevance of digital collective action and its impacts on democracy. When social movements began to systematically incorporate the Internet into their repertoires of action a few decades ago, there was expectations that the new technologies would have democratizing effects by providing a new arena from which less powerful actors could exercise their voice. Thirty years later, there is a broad debate about whether or not this expectations have been met. Based on their research on social movements in different regions of the world – from Asia to Latin America and Europe – the panelists will discuss how social movements have used new digital technologies and their impacts on democratic life.

Desinformação na internet como estratégia política
Disinformation on Internet as political strategy
Data:11 de agosto de 2020 – 10 hs (Brasil), 11 hrs (EAST TIME)
Date: August, 11th, 2020 – 10 am (Brazil), 11 am (EAST TIME)

A atividade tem como objetivo discutir a relação do fenômeno da “desinformação” com a lógica econômica da internet. Ao tratar do tema da desinformação, sob a perspectiva dos dilemas da organização da ação política, ela não é retratada, somente, como um fenômeno ocasional, ou derivado do ambiente de comunicação na internet. A própria “desinformação”, nesse sentido, é identificada como uma das distintas forças que a ação política, na atualidade, assume. Portanto, trata-se de uma iniciativa motivada por objetivos, que podem ser políticos, econômicos e, inclusive, pessoais. O debate aborda o fenômeno da “desinformação”, considerando suas implicações para a dinâmica da polarização política, sua importância na consolidação do cenário político atual e as implicações da disseminação massiva de notícias falsas e enganosas em meio a pandemia, cujos impactos para o futuro da democracia são incertos. As cadeias de valor da produção e a distribuição de “desinformação” ganharam contornos de uma indústria com lógica econômica própria que orienta e suporta o emprego dessas práticas. Esta questão adquiriu evidência no contexto de campanhas eleitorais, e, especialmente, em questões atinentes à saúde pública, como em campanhas de vacinação e atualmente no combate à pandemia de Covid-19.

The debate aims to discuss the relationship between disinformation phenomena and the economic logic of the internet. It is worth mentioning that from the perspective  of the dilemmas of political action organization, the concept of disinformation could not be understood only as an occasional phenomenon, or intrinsic to the internet communication environment. In this regard, disinformation itself refers to one of the distincts forces that political action currently assumes. Therefore, it is motivated by specific goals which can be political, economic, and even personal. This event will address the phenomenon of disinformation, considering its implications for the political polarization and its role in consolidating the current political scenario, beyond the implications of the massive dissemination of false and misleading news in the pandemic context, whose impacts for the future of democracy are uncertain. The value chains of an alleged disinformation industry and its distribution have already assumed its own economic logic that guides and supports the use of these practices. This issue gained prominence in the context of electoral campaigns, and especially in matters of public health, such as vaccination campaigns and currently, combating the Covid-19 pandemic.

Perspectivas pós pandemia: desafios do Sul Global na configuração geopolítica mundial da internet
Post-pandemic perspectives: challenges of the Global South in the global geopolitical configuration of the internet
Data: 25 de agosto de 2020 – 10hs (Brasil), 11hs (EAST Time)

A atividade tem como objetivo discutir as experiências de uso da internet por organizações e grupos políticos no contexto sul-americano. A discussão destas experiências sul-americanas se justificam pelo potencial de abordar o fenômeno do uso político da internet a partir de uma perspectiva do Sul Global. A indagação a respeito dos dilemas da ação política, tratada no âmbito regional, contribui para colocar em evidência o papel da região na configuração geopolítica mundial da internet. Para tanto, foram selecionados três episódios que abordam diferentes perspectivas da ação política no ciberespaço na América do Sul: as manifestações no Chile, a organização de comunidades nas favelas brasileiras durante a pandemia, as manifestações de motoristas de aplicativos no Brasil.

The activity aims to discuss Internet use by organizations and political groups specifically in the South American context. The focus of the discussion is justified by the potential to address the political use of the internet from a perspective of the Global South. The issue about the dilemmas of political action, analyzed from a regional level, contributes to highlight the role of this region to the global geopolitical of the Internet. Therefore, three different episodes were selected to address different perspectives of political action in cyberspace in South America: the political demonstrations in Chile, the organization of communities in the Brazilian slums during the pandemic, and the uberization phenomenon and its impacts for social movements in Brazil.
