Riga StratCom Dialogue is not just a conference about global communications, it is a hub for discussing topics that will shape our future. We invite you not to miss an opportunity to become a part of this important discussion and save the date for this event.
The third Riga StratCom Dialogue will bring together the brightest minds from the government sector, military, academia and private sector to discuss today’s strategic communications challenges.
Building on experience from the seminar “Trends in Social Media and Their Further Development“ that was held in 2017 (you can watch the videos here), in 2018 we will discuss emerging challenges and opportunities for strategic communications in social media. Experts speaking at this seminar will come from the private sector, academia, media, military and government institutions.
This seminar will focus on tools the commercial sector deems fundamental to successful communication - collaboration and gamifcation, internal communication, and storytelling.
On 5 - 6 July, the NATO Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence hosted the “The Riga StratCom Dialogue”, gathering some of the most influential minds in strategic communication, media, defence, and security.
'Post-truth' was named word of the year by the Oxford Dictionary, and we were forced to consider the scenario that we might be also witnessing the sudden and shocking death of expertise. But to confine this issue to recent memory is to overlook the ways in which the authority of facts has been in decline for some time. A free press might provide some resistance to the excesses of populist demagogy, but not to the broader crisis of facts. Some experts think that the problem lies with information overload in 21st century...

On May 13, NATO Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence will organise a one day hacking event aimed at coming up with practical methods to detect fake news and biased media online.
Fake news and biased media publishing “alternative facts” has become a problem that internet companies and governments are equally concerned about. Facebook, along with Google, has tried to cut off the financial incentives for fake news purveyors by stopping their advertising networks from being used to sell ads on fake news sites. First Draft News, with partners such as Facebook, Twitter, the Washington Post and BuzzFeed, have launched CrossCheck to...

In today’s information space, spreading fake news is as easy as a ‘Like,’ ‘Tweet’ or ‘Share.’ While NATO is deploying to Europe’s frontline, the Kremlin is field-testing new subversive techniques against Allied forces. What are the new lessons for force protection in the information space? What are the emerging do’s, don’ts and dangers of the information age? Join us for a half day seminar with leading experts from the Center for European Policy Analysis and the NATO Strategic Communications Center of Excellence on threats and remedies from the information frontier.
This discussion is organised jointly with the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA).
In today’s information space, spreading fake news is as easy as a ‘Like,’ ‘Tweet’ or ‘Share.’ While the concept of disinformation and state-sponsored propaganda is still new to many Americans, it is all too familiar to U.S. allies on NATO’s frontline, where the Kremlin has field-tested subversive techniques for decades. How can press officers and strategic communications practitioners spot false stories and identify trolls or “bot” techniques in social media? What are the emerging do’s, don’t and dangers of the information age? Join us for a discussion with leading experts from the Center for European Policy Analysis and NATO Strategic Communications Center of Excellence on threats and remedies from the information frontier.
