Webinar: Russian Disinformation's Golden Moment: Challenges and Responses in the COVID-19 Era
7 May 2020 — 3:00PM TO 4:30PM
The COVID-19 pandemic provides the ideal environment for malign influence to thrive as it feeds on fear and a vacuum of authoritative information. What are the current challenges posed by Russian disinformation, and how should Western nations be responding?
In this discussion, jointly hosted by the Jamestown Foundation and the Chatham House Russia and Eurasia Programme, the speakers consider what best practice looks like in safeguarding Western societies against the pernicious effects of disinformation.
