As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

Looking for 360/OS 2022? Click here:

The DFRLab presents the fourth annual 360/Open Summit June 22 through June 25. We brought together our team of experts across six continents with policy makers, journalists, civil society, and industry for four days of cutting-edge programming focused on human rights and democracy in a hyperconnected, online world.

The theme of this year’s 360/OS was “The World in Motion.” The COVID-19 pandemic brought much of our daily lives to an abrupt halt, making the world’s most urgent challenges converge and accelerate. We are in the midst of a digital transformation and global re-alignment. How we work together to build resilience on a foundation of common purpose and a shared set of facts is more important than ever.

This global community convened Tuesday, June 22 through Friday, June 25 for lightning talks, policy discussions, keynotes, and workshops on disinformation, connective technologies, democracy, and the future of digital rights.

You can stay up to date by following the DFRLab on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

It is up to all of us to harness the world in motion, set the direction, and create a fairer, more equitable, and rights-respecting world.  



View the daily agenda for 360/Open Summit: The World in Motion. We encourage attendees to pick and choose sessions, and come and go throughout the four days of programming.
