Information Warfare Working Group

The Center for International Security and Cooperation at the Freeman Spogli Institute and the Hoover Institution.

About the project:


The Information Warfare Working Group is a newly launched multidisciplinary working group comprised of Stanford University scholars who meet quarterly to address the issue of cyber-enabled information warfare, led by Dr. Amy Zegart and Dr. Herb Lin. Participating scholars are included below. 

The inaugural meeting will take place in November 2018, seeking to advance shared understanding of key challenges involved in both understanding and combating the issue.  

These key challenges begin with an examination of the psychological, organizational, legal, technical, and information security facets of information warfare. The group will also explore how individuals recieve information in a saturated and increasingly manupulated information environment, geopolotical drivers, responses, and why democracies are particularly vulnerable.


Dr. Rosanna Guadagno is the Director for the Information Warfare Working group. For more information please contact her at
