Social media platforms have transformed the way in which politicians, voters, and advocacy groups convey messages during democratic elections. But while user-generated communications can promote civic engagement and political expression, they can also cultivate an environment for online mis- and disinformation to rapidly spread to large audiences. As a result of false information campaigns relating to elections, COVID-19, climate change, and more, some technology platforms have taken recent actions to reinforce content moderation. Meanwhile, lawmakers have proposed new policy frameworks for digital content moderation and platform liability that could have global implications for election integrity, national security, and free expression. Join CSIS for a conversation on the future of online communications and the role of social media platforms in a democratic society.
