Truth or dare: navigating misinformation in EU elections

Peter Pomerantsev, journalist and author
22nd May 2024
13:00 - 14:00

Peter Pomerantsev is a Soviet-born British journalist, author and TV producer. He is a senior fellow at Johns Hopkins University and co-director of the Arena Initiative, an innovative programme dedicated to overcoming the challenges of disinformation and polarisation.

Born in Kyiv, Pomerantsev grew up in the UK and is the author of several books about propaganda by Russia and other authoritarian states. The third of these books, How to Win an Information War: The Propagandist Who Outwitted Hitler, was published in March 2024. This piece Pomerantsev wrote for the Guardian is a good primer on the book. 

Pomerantsev will discuss the threat of information operations in the context of this year's European elections, which will take place in early June 2024. He'll also speak about disinformation and its impact on the war in Ukraine and other conflicts.
