Democratic Defense Against Disinformation 2.0

On June 13, the Eurasia Center hosted a public event on Capitol Hill for the launch of the report, Democratic Defense Against Disinformation 2.0. 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 challenge of disinformation. The report provides both a report card on efforts to counter disinformation and a roadmap for policymakers and social media companies. The event included keynote remarks from Senator Chris Murphy, followed by a panel discussion with the report’s authors, Dr. Alina Polyakova, Director of the Project on Global Democracy and Emerging Technologies at The Brookings Institution, and Ambassador Daniel Fried, Distinguished Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center and Future Europe Initiative. Eurasia Center Deputy Director Geysha Gonzalez moderated the conversation.
