By Rachel Johannigmeier

On January 17, 2017, the Jean Monnet European Union Centre of Excellence at the University of Pittsburgh held a roundtable discussion entitled "Calling Foul: Electoral Interference in the US and Europe." Panelists included: John R. Deni (Research Professor of National Security Studies, Gen. Douglas MacArthur Chair of Research, Strategic Studies Institute), Florian Hartleb (Independent Scholar and Consultant, E-Estonia and digitization), Helga Druxes (Professor of German, Williams College), and William Dunn (Professor, Graduate School of Public & International Affairs).  Sean Guillory (Blogger and Podcaster, Affiliate with Center for Russian and East European Studies) served as moderator.

From the abstract of the roundtable discussion:

Have we entered a new age of cyber-sabotage? In this session of Conversations on Europe, our expert panel explored episodes of foreign state interference in electoral politics in Europe and the U.S. past and present. From state-sponsored hacking to Wikileaks, what do we know about who is calling the shots?
