The View from Congress: Fighting Online Extremism and Promoting Digital Democracy

Diese Veranstaltung liegt in der Vergangenheit.

Over the last Congress, evidence of the rise in online extremist activity, including the January 6 attack on the Capitol and the revelations of the Facebook whistleblower, made clear that the whack-a-mole approach to platform governance has hit a dead end and more direct action is needed.

Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) is the lead author of the Protecting Americans from Dangerous Algorithms Act, designed to address algorithmic amplification of harmful content that leads to offline violence. He also authored and helped pass the bipartisan congressional resolution to condemn QAnon and its dangerous conspiracy theories.

Join Rep. Malinowski in a moderated conversation as we discuss technology, extremism, US competitiveness and the new era of American industrial policy, and how the United States can defend democracy at home and abroad

The German Marshall Fund
The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) is a non-partisan policy organization committed to the idea that the United States and Europe are stronger together. GMF champions the principles of democracy, human rights, and international cooperation, which have served as the bedrock of peace and prosperity since the end of World War II, but are under increasing strain. GMF works on issues critical to transatlantic interests in the 21st century, including the future of democracy, security and geopolitics, alliances and the rise of China, and technology and innovation. By drawing on and fostering a community of people with diverse life experiences and political perspectives, GMF pursues its mission by driving the policy debate through cutting-edge analysis and convening, fortifying civil society, and cultivating the next generation of leaders on both sides of the Atlantic. Founded by Guido Goldman (November 4, 1937 – November 30, 2020) in 1972 through a gift from Germany as a tribute to the Marshall Plan, GMF is headquartered in Washington, DC, with offices in Berlin, Brussels, Ankara, Belgrade, Bucharest, Paris, and Warsaw.
