Well-attended CMS seminar about disinformation

Tuesday 17 September CMS hosted a public seminar on the strategic dimensions of disinformation. Experts from the Swedish Research Defence Agency, Lund University and Oxford University took part in the seminar and discussed the subject from three different perspectives. The seminar was moderated by André Ken Jakobsson from the Centre for Military Studies.  

Niklas Rossbach from the Swedish Research Defence Agency opened the seminar with a presentation on Swedish history with disinformation. Samantha Bradshaw from Oxford University followed with a presentation on digital methods of disinformation, and finally Henrik Agardh-Twetman from Lund University finished the round with a presentation on countermeasures to disinformation. After the three presentations the discussion continued with questions from the audience.
