Berkman Klein Center Panel Discussion: Protecting Elections from Online Manipulation and Cyber Threats

October 23, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

FEATURING JUSTICE HANAN MELCER, SUPREME COURT OF ISRAEL 

(RSVP REQUIRED)

Harvard Law School, Wasserstein Hall
Room 2012
Cambridge, MA 02138

As the 2020 U.S. Presidential election heats up, we are seeing increased attention to campaigning, both legal and illegal, on social media.  Bots and trolls, hyper-targeted advertising and dark ads all raise sustained concerns about how strategic interventions on social media will affect elections in democratic societies.  Israel went through two full election campaigns in 2019, featuring the cutting edge of network propaganda technologies.  Justice Hanan Melcer of Israel’s Supreme Court chaired Israel’s Central Elections Committee during both elections and will speak about his experiences managing the two election cycles and ruling on campaign practices as they unfolded in real-time.
