Through keynote speakers and a series of interdisciplinary panels, the conference will address questions such as: How do state actors now use the internet as a tool to influence public opinion and shape the political terrain, often in malign ways? What are governments doing both to defend against information warfare from without, and control the flow of information from within? And what is the role of the private sector in advancing and ensuring the flow of news and information to a global audience?
