Understanding how these campaigns work and how foreign agents can take advantage of media and technological platforms will be crucial to protecting American electoral processes. This panel will present perspectives from researchers across a variety of disciplines who study how disinformation works, and whose research is a crucial first step to understanding how Congress can address this critical problem.
