Warsaw Institute attend NATO Advanced Workshop in Moldova
On April 25-27, 2018, NATO Advanced Workshop: Challenges in strategic communication and fighting propaganda on Eastern Europe. Solutions for a future common project was organized in Chișinău. This event was organized by Center for Civic Participation and Democracy (CPD) operating within the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration (SNSPA, Romania) and Moldavian Institute for Development and Social Initiatives (IDIS).
The meeting gathered experts, journalists, scientists, representatives of the third sector and officials from the USA, Moldova, Romania, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Serbia and representatives of the EU and NATO who were discussing topics connected with information security, strategic communication, propaganda, disinformation and results of existing research in this area. A representative of Warsaw Institute also took part in a debate “Power narratives”, presenting key issues in the evolution of disinformation against Poland and challenges which are ahead of European countries and the US and concerning a fight of harmful information operations connected with the technology development.
The result of the project was an exchange of knowledge concerning the functioning of hostile narratives and collecting experience in fighting them. A series of recommendations and project’s concepts have been laid down. A tightening of regional cooperation and establishing contacts with region’s experts turned out to be an inestimable value of the workshop. The publication of texts prepared by the invited specialists will be a result of the ongoing discussions.
