Speaker information

Dr Martin Moore, Director of the Centre for the Study of Media, King's College London

In recent elections and in the EU referendum, concerns have been raised about online targeting of voters in social media and use of voter data. It has been said that this breaches the laws on data protection; the overall caps on election spending; and restrictions on foreign funding, with suggestions of interference from Russia. Dr Martin Moore’s research for his latest book suggests there is cause for concern. He is director of the Centre for the Study of Media, Communication and Power at King’s College London, and was previously founding director of the Media Standards Trust.
