Please join the Atlantic Council for the launch of our report, Democratic Defense Against Disinformation 2.0 on Thursday, June 13, 2019 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Russell Senate Office Building Room 485 (2 Constitution Ave NE, Room 485, Washington, DC 20002).
Foreign interference in democratic elections has put disinformation at the forefront of policy in Europe and the United States. The second edition of Democratic Defense Against Disinformation takes stock of how governments, multinational institutions, civil-society groups, and the private sector have responded to the disinformation challenge. As democracies have responded, our adversaries have adapted and evolved. As the speed and efficiency of influence operations increase, democratic societies need to further invest in resilience and resistance to win the new information war. Democratic Defense Against Disinformation 2.0 is a report card on efforts and a roadmap for policymakers and social media companies.
The report authors, Dr. Alina Polyakova, director, of the Project on Global Democracy and Emerging Technologies at the Brookings Institution and Ambassador Daniel Fried, distinguished fellow with the Atlantic Council, will present the main finding and a way forward.
We hope you can join us for this timely discussion.
