Event Registration
Event Description

This year will see the largest worldwide electoral cycle until 2048, with over 80 national elections taking place, directly impacting an estimated 4.2 billion people. These elections will take place against a backdrop of heightened threats: technology companies are decreasing their investments in trust and safety; foreign influence operations are becoming increasingly prolific and effective; powerful generative AI tools are rapidly evolving; and the emergence of several partisan investigations in the United States have distracted policymakers and companies. Please join us for a discussion of how technology will impact elections worldwide, and how you can help defend the year of democracy.

Our guest is Kat Duffy is a senior fellow for digital and cyberspace policy at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Duffy has more than two decades of experience operating at the nexus of emerging technology, democratic principles, corporate responsibility, and human rights.
