TCEI Web Talk: U.S. Midterms ’22 – The battle for the “true” integrity of the election

Listen again to our Transatlantic Commission on Election Integrity (TCEI) virtual discussion on the U.S. midterm elections 2022, with some of our U.S.-based Commissioners. In our conversation, focused on two specific aspects of the 2022 U.S. midterm elections from a TCEI perspective: First, what do we know about the foreign influence factor and how should it be assessed? And second, why does “election integrity” mean something very different in the current debate in the U.S. than it does in many other democracies around the world? In the discussion with our audience, we conclude by discussing what both aspects mean for the U.S. ambitions and role in the global fight against malign foreign interference in elections and against political disinformation.
