Consider the digital risks confronting U.S. elections in 2024 from Paul M. Barrett, deputy director and senior research scholar at the Center for Business and Human Rights at New York University’s Stern School of Business. While generative artificial intelligence can facilitate the spread of misinformation, the main risk is social media, as platforms fail to take steps to protect election integrity.

 

More on Paul M. Barrett

 

This program is the second in a series titled Bridging Political Divides: Exploring the Radical Middle

 

As our world faces rising political extremism, some citizens have focused on transcending left–right political divides. They advocate for evidence-based policies and solution-focused political discourse that seeks common ground. Through this lens of the “Radical Middle,” we can understand the current challenges facing our community and world, paving the way for more united and resilient societies.
