Aspen Ideas Alumni: “Social Media Threatens Democracy”

Aspen Ideas Alumni: “Social Media Threatens Democracy


Aspen Institute España hosted last Thursday, February 23rd a session of the Aspen Ideas Alumni Program on “Social Media Threatens Democracy”. The session was moderated by Salomé Santos, Agriculture Director of Azucarera and Aspen España Fellow. This Program offers a space to continue the conversations on leadership, values and public policies previously generated in our Seminars. The sessions are based on a classic or contemporary reading guided by an Aspen Institute España moderator.

Former sessions of this Program have been moderated by three Aspen España Fellows: Miguel Herrero de Jáuregui, Professor of Greek Philology at the Complutense University of Madrid, Gaspar Atienza, Ph.D. in International Public Law and International Relations and Partner in the Commercial Department of Garrigues, and Salomé Santos, Agriculture Director of Azucarera, taking as reference texts such as canto XXIV of the Iliad; The Frontiers of Dialogue by Claudio Magris, among others. On this occasion, the recommended reading was Jonathan Haidt’s article Why the last ten years in the US have been singularly stupid (The Atlantic, 2022).
