The lecture will focus on Russia’s sophisticated and effective disinformation campaign against Western values and institutions in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The Baltic States are under-studied targets for the spread of this disinformation, both in terms of its consequences, and as possible sources for countering these new forms of propaganda.

Donald N. Jensen is a Senior Adjunct Fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) where he edits the Information Warfare Initiative’s weekly monitoring brief. Jensen is also a Senior Fellow at the Center for Transatlantic Relations, Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. A former U.S. diplomat, he writes extensively on Russian foreign and domestic politics, especially Russia’s relations with Europe.

The lecture is organized by the UT Centre for EU-Russia Studies (CEURUS).

The lectures are open to all, no prior registration is required.
