A New Vision for IR Schools in the Platformed World

Key points:

Whole way in which information and society are organized has changed. From stovepipes to networks — growing power of audience and authentity.

On July 12th, he warned a commission of members of parliament, in charge of a survey about the terrorist attacks of 2015, about it.
