Protecting Democracy: Modernizing the Foreign Agents Registration Act
To say that foreign influence in the United States has dominated today’s political discourse would be an understatement. At the center of this discussion is the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), an important t
tool designed to safeguard against foreign influence in the US. But FARA, created on the precipice of World War II, is in need of significant modernization to adequately safeguard our democracy. The conference will convene academics,
analysts, and practitioners from diverse fields, including law, national security, public policy, and others, to tackle this difficult challenge.
This conference is co-sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and will take place at its headquarters in Washington, DC.
