Sweden and NATO StratCom COE sign cooperation agreement

Today director Janis Sarts signed cooperation agreement between NATO StratCom COE and Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency. NATO StratCom COE received letter of intent for Sweden to cooperate as a contributing partner in April 2016. Sweden noted the important work of the NATO StratCom COE since it became functional in 2014. The Swedish government and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) have for a number of years identified the need for preparedness and relevant capabilities in order to provide Sweden with a proper capability to detect and respond to disinformation campaigns and other similar threats against society. Joining Nato StratCom Centre of Excellence as a contributing partner is in this respect a natural step for MSB and Sweden.
