Propaganda and disinformation campaigns have changed election outcomes, catalyzed insurrections, and hampered COVID-19 vaccination efforts. Left unchecked, these tactics threaten to derail global economic recovery and damage decades of social progress. What steps do governments and private-sector outfits need to take to stop the spread of disinformation?
