Countering Foreign Disinformation and Surveillance

Election interference by foreign states has long been an issue in many countries, from U.S. interference in Chilean elections in the 1970s to Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections. How has election interference evolved, especially with the rise of social media?

Join ALLIES this Wednesday as we discuss how countries can combat disinformation from foreign state and non-state actors. As usual, no prior knowledge is required and background readings will be provided. All are welcome, and we hope to see you there!

From Pandemics to Poverty: The Implications for Corona Virus for the Furthest Behind

Join European Horizons for a discussion about the impact of COVID-19 on inequality and global poverty.  

According to the World Bank, COVID-19 is likely to cause the first increase in global poverty since 1998. These projections have led to widespread calls for deep socio-economic reform. 

During our discussion, we will consider how the pandemic has altered public opinion regarding healthcare and wealth inequality. We will also discuss how governments can mitigate the economic consequences of the pandemic.
