Workshop

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung will host a workshop in conjunction with the Center for Strategic and International Studies to allow experts from different fields to discuss their methods for studying disinformation efforts around the world.

With the growth of social media, disinformation has become an increasingly potent political tool. State and non-state actors from various countries, have become adept at manufacturing and spreading disinformation or using covert campaigns to influence public perception and political outcomes in democratic countries around the world. Responding to this threat requires policy makers to integrate insights from different countries and from academic fields that are too often siloed, including communications, computer science, and social psychology.

A public panel will be held at CSIS Headquarters at 4:30pm

Opening Remarks Paul Linnarz: Director, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung USA

Moderator Jeffrey Mankhof: Deputy Director and Senior Fellow, Russia and Eurasia, CSIS

Panelists Joshua Eisenman: Assistant Professor of Public Affairs, Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, The University of Texas at Austin
