Informing the Public GCAS Lecture Series.png

The Global Center for Advanced Studies (GCAS) has provided thousands of hours of free high-quality lectures and conferences to the public since 2013. We are committed to providing the public with high-level information and research findings from world-leading experts. This mission has become increasingly important in the context of active disinformation campaigns organized and distributed by social actors and institutions who seek to undermine the social good.
