INFLUENCE CAMPAIGNS: FROM SUN TZU TO FAKE NEWS
Time & Location
About the Event
For this event, we invited top professionals with different backgrounds to discuss different perspectives of influence campaigns and within two hours we will try to answer some of the most interesting questions.
We will start with the philosophy and practice of influence campaigns from the time of Sun Tzu and we will see how the tools change over time. Then we will introduce some of the highest recent technologies and tools for identifying influence campaigns and the development of influence campaigns in the darknet. We will examine the experience of Isreal and while our special speakers from RIEAS Greece will introduce us to the practice of Turkish influence campaigns in Greece. With the special participation of our colleagues from the Kosovar Centre for Security Studies, we will take a glance at Kosovo's perspective on the state of play of disinformation with particular emphasis during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis on how disinformation/misinformation/fake contents were circulating among Kosovar media outlets.
We promote and encourage audience interactions which is why we dedicated time for active discussions. The event is highly international and we would appreciate getting into as many perspectives as possible.
