Speaker: Manuel Castells

From the Arab uprisings, to the indignadas movement in Spain, to Occupy in the US, the networked social movements of the digital age represent a new species of social movement.
Leading scholar of our contemporary networked society, Manuel Castells, visits the RSA to shed light on these movements, and to examine their formation, their dynamics, their values and their prospects for social transformation.More Information
