This includes the roles of organizations such as technology companies, election management bodies, observers, civil society and others, considering specific responses to attacks on elections and the democratic process more broadly. The conversation, including representatives from various perspectives, focuses on a discussion of the implications of the transformation and the ways that they have engaged in developing solutions to confronting negative trends and building democratic, open and free political systems and societies online and off, globally.
