In her lecture, Nina Jankowicz will focus on examples from Central and Eastern Europe that demonstrate why we need to do more than just fact-check and obliterate fake accounts in order to counter misinformation.
NINA JANKOWICZ is a Global Fellow at the Kennan Institute currently working on a book about the evolution of modern Russian influence campaigns in Eastern Europe.
