Anatomy of a Disinformation Campaign

As American voters prepare for Election Day, join The Carter Center, the Alliance for Securing Democracy at German Marshall Fund (ASD at GMF) and the World Affairs Council of Atlanta for "Anatomy of A Disinformation Campaign." Bret Schafer, head of the Alliance for Securing Democracy at GMF's information manipulation team, will present his expert research on coordinated efforts to distort perceptions and affect behavior.

Bret will explain how information operations are designed and executed, using examples from ASD at GMF’s Hamilton 2.0 dashboard, which tracks Russian, Chinese, and Iranian state-backed messaging, and Midterm Monitor, which covers domestic messaging around election administration. Michael Baldassaro, the data scientist who leads the Carter Center's efforts to safeguard information integrity in elections worldwide, will serve as moderator and provide additional comments.
