What are ‘influence operations’?
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace defines influence operations as:
“…organized attempts to achieve a specific effect among a target audience.
“In such instances, a variety of actors — ranging from advertisers to activists to opportunists — employ a diverse set of tactics, techniques, and procedures to affect the decisionmaking, beliefs, and opinions of a target audience.”
