NATO STRATCOMCOE to discuss EU view on disinformation

The Rīga-based NATO Strategic Communications Center of Excellence (STRATCOMCOE) is back with another online discussion on June 17. 

This time the subject is "Disinformation: the view from the EU" with Lutz Güllner (Head of Unit, European External Action Service), Anneli Kimber (Strategic communication project manager, Lund University) and Jānis Sārts (Director, NATO STRATCOMCOE).

"China and Russia have been the main sources of disinformation during the COVID-19 crisis, highlighting the problem of disinformation. Both have tried to portray EU countries unable to work together and tackle the pandemic effectively. At this event, we will discuss, how big of a problem is disinformation and what have been the main efforts to fight it. The event will focus on how EU can cooperate to protect societies, elections and work to solve future crises," says advance material.

The event will be livestreamed on 17 June at 16:30 Rīga time (GMT+3) on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, and we'll have a live link on this page, too.
