In this episode, featured guest Moisés Naím discusses how illiberal political actors and authoritarian regimes are leveraging the increasingly complex globalized information space to exploit societal cleavages created by political polarization, employing a problematic mix of media manipulation and disinformation. Moisés Naím is a distinguished fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He is also the chief international columnist for El País and La Repubblica, Spain and Italy’s largest dailies, and a contributing editor to The Atlantic. Shanthi Kalathil, senior director for NED’s International Forum for Democratic Studies, and Christopher Walker, NED vice president for studies and analysis, cohost the conversation.
