Munich Politics Network 2018

The inaugural event of the Munich Politics Network, a joint cooperation with the National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech), was dedicated to the topic Disruptive Politics & Technology. Rapid advances in technology – e.g. robotics, artificial intelligence, e-trade, digitalization, autonomous vehicles – are leading to unprecedented changes in politics, society, and economy. At the same time, shock events in politics – e.g. Brexit vote, election of president Trump, and the rise of populism – question existing democracies and the multilateral world order. Against this background, the Munich Politics Network focuses on the interdisciplinary study of disruptions, characterized by major sudden displacements of existing political, economic, societal, or technological structures and its rapid substitution by new structures or emerging technologies.
