The Digital Think-Tank in a ‘Post-Truth’ Age: WonkComms in Conversation with David Nassar

11 October 2017 - 6:15pm to 8:00pm

Chatham House, London


David Nassar, Vice President for Communications, Brookings Institution
Chair: Nicole Valentinuzzi, Director of Communications, Institute for Government



David Nassar discusses digital publishing, the future of online content and the role of think-tanks in Trump’s America at a special WonkComms event.

His background in digital media and politics makes him ideally placed to comment on how think-tanks can move beyond traditional publishing models and how they can evolve to bring their insights to new audiences.

With the rise of populist politics on both sides of the Atlantic and renewed cynicism of expert opinion and research, David explores how think-tanks in the US are responding to this brave new world.
