On this episode of Lawfare’s Arbiters of Truth series on disinformation, Alina Polyakova and Quinta Jurecic spoke with ASD Director Laura Rosenberger about Chinese information operations.
When it comes to information operations, most Americans probably think of Russia as the primary culprit. After all, the memory of Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election is still fresh. But over the past year, Chinese information operations have gained prominence with the Chinese Communist Party involved in aggressive online campaigns regarding unrest in Hong Kong and the ongoing pandemic. The hosts and Director Laura Rosenberger talked about how the Chinese government wields information online, how Chinese tactics are different from Russian tactics in the information space, and how democracies should respond.
