Panel historians will look at instances of these phenomena to help us understand the challenges they present to our democracy both historically and today and what remedies we might pursue. Experts on child trafficking will contribute their expertise on how a specific conspiracy theory – like QAnon – is hijacking legitimate conversations in this critical policy area.
