Join IFES and Justice José Luis Vargas Valdez for a conversation on emerging approaches to disinformation and social media in elections, both in Mexico and worldwide.

He is a member of the Venice Commission and senior consultant on election offenses and the resolution of legal disputes for the Organization of American States. He has participated in various election observation missions, including in the United States.
