Specialist in online culture and technology

Author, "The Dark Net" (2014)

Head of the Violence and Extremism Programme, Demos

As Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at the think-tank Demos, Jamie Bartlett focuses on the ways in which social media and modern communications and technology are changing political and social movements, with a special emphasis on terrorism and radical political movements. He is also Head of the Violence and Extremism Programme at the same institution.

The Centre for the Analysis of Social Media is a collaboration between Demos and the University of Sussex. The Centre combines automated data extraction and sentiment analysis with social science statistics, analysis and ethics, to produce insightful and robust policy research.

Jamie is the author of “The Dark Net” (2014), an examination of the hidden corners of the internet and the strange subcultures and protagonists that inhabit it – from Bitcoin miners to neo-Nazis. He is also the author of “#intelligence” (2012), co-authored with Sir David Omand about the use of internet intelligence by the security services and the police. His most recent publication is an e-book titled “Orwell versus the Terrorists: Crypto-wars and the Future of Surveillance” (2015).

He is also a technology blogger for the Telegraph and writes frequently for several publications on how the internet is changing politics and society, including the New York Times, The Times, the Guardian, Foreign Policy, and Prospect.

Our Comment

"Jamie’s main topics are new political movements, social media research and analysis, internet cultures and security and privacy online. Focusing on his latest research for "The Dark Net", his talks offer a startling glimpse of human nature under the conditions of freedom and anonymity, and shines a light on an enigmatic and ever-changing world."
