Foreign Interference in Elections – should we be concerned?

Foreign interference in elections: we’ve heard the uproar, read the investigations, and fretted about it at the polling booth. But what lessons have we learned since 2016, and just how worried should we really be?

The British Foreign Policy Group presents a lively and provocative panel discussion of experts, exploring the nature and role that foreign interference could play in the forthcoming British and American national elections.

Looking at the situation here in Britain, and across the pond to the 2020 US Presidential elections, our panelists will debate how much of a risk foreign interference presents, and discuss how to implement policies to tackle this defining problem in modern democracies.
