The Atlantic Council, together with the U.S. Embassy to Spain and the Rafael del Pino Foundation, hosted #DisinfoWeek Madrid from 17:30-20:00 at the Auditorio Rafael del Pino (Calle Rafael Calvo, 39A).


As state and non-state actors seek to influence Western democracies through targeted disinformation campaigns across multiple media environments, policymakers in Europe, the United States, and around the world are recognizing the growing threat to international security. To buttress governmental efforts, civil society groups, investigative journalists, think tanks, and tech platforms are also developing tools and tactics for countering and exposing disinformation narratives. In an effort to advance the transatlantic partnership on countering disinformation, the Atlantic Council and its partners brought these groups together for a dialogue on the actors and tools involved in this space, and to discuss potential solutions.


#DisinfoWeek in Madrid gathered experts from governments, civil society, and tech platforms to develop tools and tactics for countering disinformation narratives. Find out more about our speakers.
