Infodemic: Defending democracy against disinformation

Streaming live: Wednesday, October 13, 2021 | 11am ET/ 8am PT
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?

Ginny Badanes, Nina Jankowicz, Rick Stengel, Yasmin Green, Matt Masterson, Kevin Allison, and Vijay Vaitheeswaran examine the spread of disinformation globally, evaluate its impact on politics, societies and markets, and identify solutions to this increasingly urgent threat.
