Video of talk by 2014 CGCS Visiting Scholar James Losey that moves beyond an online-only assumption of political action and demonstrates how institutional advocacy such as gaining access to government bodies, lobbying, and targeting decisions maker provides a critical compliment for public advocacy such as mobilization and online advocacy. Building from case studies of internet policy activism, this talk offers a more nuanced understanding of how the internet and activism drives change.
