Presenting at Cornell IOPGA’s Summit on Democracy, NYC, May 24


This coming Tuesday, Cornell’s Institute of Politics and Global Affairs in New York City is bringing together an array of prominent experts — including Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Jeff Katko (R-NY) — for a Summit on Democracy to discuss the crisis in U.S. democracy and the impact of technology-driven misinformation.

I’ll be presenting on the work we’ll be doing at Nationhood Lab, the project I’m founding at the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy, which aims to contribute to the defense of our liberal democracy against a building authoritarian threat. My panel presentation kicks off at 9:45 am, alongside a pollster and a political scientist who are releasing the results of a Cornell national survey of voters. The event is open to the public and you’ll find registration information here.

Other speakers include Barton Gellman, a Pulitzer Prize winning staff writer at The Atlantic; the German Marshall Fund’s Karen Kornbluh, former U.S. Ambassador to the OECD, Mark Zuckerman, president of the Century Foundation, and Cornell-IOPGA director, former Rep. Steve Israel.
