9.00am:
  • YouTube and Philippine Politics
  • Dr Cheryll Ruth Soriano (De La Salle University, Manila)
  • High levels of engagement in politics are generally considered to be a sign of a healthy democracy, where the citizenry is empowered and interested in being involved in matters of the State. But is that always true? In the Philippines, where a third of the 61 million-strong electorates are from the 18-35 age bracket, and for whom social media is often considered as a news source despite widespread disinformation, the answer may not be so simple.
