Finally Fixing FARA?
In an era of heightened foreign influence in the U.S. political process, the Quincy Institute will host a public webinar about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the U.S.’s oldest law on the books for regulating foreign influence in America — the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). Panelists from the legal, media, and think tank sectors will provide critical insights about the law, its ability to promote transparency of foreign influence in America, and the various proposals that have been introduced to overhaul this 85 year old law.
The discussion will feature Matt Duss, Visiting Scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Hailey Fuchs, reporter at Politico; and David Laufman, partner at Wiggin & Dana. Ben Freeman, Research Fellow at the Quincy Institute, will moderate.
