EUROPE, AMERICA AND THE BLOGOSPHERE
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006
HUDSON INSTITUTE'S BETSY AND WALTER STERN CONFERENCE CENTER
RSVP VIA EMAIL TO RSVP@HUDSON.ORG OR CALL 202-974-2400.
Why has blogging had greater political impact in the U.S. than in Europe? Are the reasons technical, economic, political or cultural? And is this situation changing?
Last year saw major European controversies, in particular, the referendum defeats for the proposed European constitution. Some European leaders want to revive this constitution in the next few years. Will that be the issue on which Europe's bloggers finally get to influence the political debate? And if so, in which direction?
These and other questions will be discussed by our distinguished panel of experts:
Helen Szamuely is head of research for The Bruges Group (London) and one half of the Euro-skeptic blog www.eureferendum.blogspot.com. She writes regularly for The Bruges Group, the Centre for Research into Post-Communist Economies (CRCE), and TechCentral Station.
Gerard Baker is the Washington bureau chief for the Times of London.
Noam Scheiber is a senior editor at the New Republic and writes regularly for TNR's The Plank.
Mark Tapscott is director of the Heritage Foundation's Center for Media and Public Policy.
John O'Sullivan is a senior fellow at Hudson Institute and director of Hudson's Center for European Studies.
