Please join NDN on Tuesday, April 6th at 1pm for a conversation with Jessica Brandt of the Alliance for Securing Democracy. We will be talking about one of the most interesting new foreign policy battles of the early Biden era - the great power race between the US/West and authoritarian countries to vaccinate the world and be the ones to defeat COVID. She's calling her initial remarks "Harnessing the Truth in Service of a Lie: Russia, China, and Iran's Information Strategies in the Vaccine Contest."
We are really excited about this discussion as it brings together important elements of the emerging Biden era foreign policy vision which NDN has spent time working on these past few years - the need to effectively counter rising illberalism around the world, and learning how to better engage and compete against Russian and Chinese information/hybrid war strategies. It's going to be a great event, and the work Jessica and her colleagues have been doing in this space has been really terrific.
On the NDN website you can find Jessica's biography and important background readings. There you can also review NDN's call for the Biden Administration to launch a plan to defeat COVID in the Americas, and Simon's Letras Libres essay on the opportunity Joe Biden has to use the global effort to defeat COVID and build back better to reinvigorate the global liberal order imagined and built by the US after WWII.
