Citizens, governments, and tech platforms around the world increasingly struggle to counter influence operations.

We believe that little progress will be made without a spirit of partnership between governments, the tech industry, media, academia, and civil society. Such collaborations are challenging but necessary in order to accomplish the three aims that PCIO believes are vital: to answer difficult policy problems related to influence operations; to find ways to measure the effect of adversarial influence operations; and to develop methods for measurement and evaluation of countermeasures.

Fostering Community

Engaging a community of multidisciplinary cross-sector expertise on countering influence operations.

Answering Policy Problems

Framing and answering difficult policy problems that require a multidisciplinary cross-sector community to address.

Understanding Influence Operations

Researching influence operations taking a multi-disciplinary and contextual approach.
