On this episode Rose Jackson explains how, in her work as Director of the Digital Forensic Research Lab’s Democracy + Tech Initiative at The Atlantic Council, she and others in civil society are changing the tide—using tech to support healthy societies and robust democracies around the world. 

We cover a lot in this episode: human rights, digital trust, and a new task force that’s diving deep into what’s causing divisions in society and how tech can help repair them.
