The year 2017 has shown that democracy is increasingly threatened by digital attacks. The French and Kenyan presidential elections as well as the German parliamentarian elections are examples of digital interference with democracy. In an article published by Policy Options on 18 January 2018, Christopher Tenove argues that the best way to defend ourselves from electoral interference by foreign digital operations is to strengthen democracy domestically. The article delineates five key observations from a report he co-authored and was released by the University of British Columbia’s Centre for the Study of Democratic Institutions.

Christopher Tenove is a 2008 Trudeau Foundation scholar and a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of British Columbia.
