In 2018, the Danish Embassy in Washington D.C. has engaged in three new partnerships. Through these partnerships, the Embassy seeks to promote Danish values and engage locally in Washington D.C. with central actors on central issues. This year the partnerships have taken on a broad spectrum of topics including migration, women’s economic empowerment and LGBTI-rights. Read about each of these unique partnerships below:


Atlantic Council Digital Forensic Research Lab

People across the world today are more connected and have more access to information than at any prior point in history. The Embassy is therefore delighted to partner with Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, which is a leading entity in the field of countering misinformation. Their innovative work has led to new approaches in forging digital resilience at a time where people – especially in developing countries – are becoming increasingly more connected. Tapping into the existing network build by Atlantic Council provides a basis for effectively addressing the rise of misinformation in real-time by fostering digital resilience in the target regions.
