Episode 6: Disinformation and Political Warfare

Disinformation is not new, but it has certainly evolved. Today, it is strongly linked to international security, as malign actors seize on it to pursue their own strategic interests.

Are democracies equipped to navigate this new landscape of political warfare? Host Alanna Putze is joined by Monika Richter of the American Foreign Policy Council and Graham Brookie of the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab to explore the multifaceted scope of today’s disinformation challenge, and why tackling it is vital for democratic security.
