Disinfo Discussions: Marietje Schaake

Marietje Schaake is the international policy director of Stanford University’s Cyber Policy Center and an international policy fellow at Stanford’s Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence. She spoke with Ryan Merkley, Commission on Information Disorder project director, on her experience as a member of European Parliament for the Dutch liberal democratic party and the legislative effort to reduce the spread and impact of disinformation on social media.

This session is part of a series of expert briefings hosted in tandem with our Commission on Information Disorder to help make sense of the various facets of the information crisis. “Disinfo Discussions” is designed as a resource for the commissioners as well as the broader public.
