The Moldovan Information Environment, Hostile Narratives, and their Ramifications

Date: 
8th December 2016
Event location/address: 
Pullman Riga Old Town Hotel 1st floor conference room, Jēkaba Street 24, Riga, Latvia

Moldovan information environment has been a focus area for the NATO Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence (NATO StratCom COE) during the past year. We are now excited to invite you to share some of the results. The study has taken a novel approach by investigating mechanisms, which link societal vulnerabilities and people’s behaviour. The aim is to better understand the Moldovan information environment, especially the Kremlin narratives and their impact on Moldovan politics.

On 8 December, the NATO StratCom COE will present the key findings of the research, discuss hostile narratives targeted at Moldova and elsewhere and offer policy recommendations.

The NATO StratCom COE invites you to attend the publication event on 8 December at the Pullman Riga Old Town Hotel 1st floor conference room, Jēkaba Street 24, Riga, Latvia
