AIF-Funded Event Addresses Russian Disinformation
A RAND research team is using support from the Alumni Impact Fund (AIF) to help mitigate the national security risks of Truth Decay. As part of their efforts to widely share recommended interventions, they used AIF funding to help inform and engage the media at an event in September. The event focused on ways to investigate and understand disinformation by foreign adversaries. It was hosted by the National Press Foundation and attended by journalists from around the country. RAND researchers Marek N. Posard, Todd C. Helmus, and William Marcellino spoke about Russian disinformation and RAND's effort to help prevent foreign adversaries from manipulating U.S. public discourse.
The event transcript, video, and an article written by RAND alumnus Sonni Efron are available to view on the National Press Foundation website.
