The U.S. intelligence community reports that election interference ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin aimed “to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process.” How will democracy fare in this new era, both in the United States and beyond?

Kaplan writes the War Stories column for Slate, which covers international relations and U.S. foreign policy, and is the author of “Dark Territory: The Secret History of Cyber War.”

He will moderate the panel “New Platforms of Control” at the Princeton-Fung Global Forum “Society 3.0+: Can Liberty Survive the Digital Age?” to be held March 20-21, 2017 in Berlin.
