ESJ Insight: On Disinformation and Russia with Nicolás de Pedro

ESJ Insight brings you an insider’s perspective on current security issues. Join us to discover more about the threats and challenges facing Europe today and tomorrow.

Since the annexation of Crimea, Russia has been flexing its muscle in Europe. Not just militarily, but especially through the use of its disinformation networks. How can Europe deal with them? What drives Russia to this behaviour? Or what should be the EU’s stance towards the proxy conflicts (Ukraine, Caucasus…) in its neighbourhood with obvious Russian involvement? Find answers to these and more questions in our today’s frank podcast!

Nicolás de Pedro is a Senior Fellow at The Institute for Statecraft in London where he works on issues related to Russia, disinformation and hybrid threats. He is also a member of the Experts Pool on Russia at the European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats (Hybrid CoE) in Helsinki and he is also a core group member of the EU-Russia Experts Network (EUREN). Furthermore, he has worked as a consultant on Russian and Eurasian issues for the European Parliament, the Open Society Initiative for Europe (OSIFE), the Club of Madrid, and the European Union-Central Asia Monitoring (EUCAM) Project.

Recorded on 20th January.

“We are still approaching disinformation and hybrid threats mostly as a technical issue. It is not a technical issue, it is a strategic challenge we are facing.”

Nicolás de Pedro, Senior Fellow at The Institute for Statecraft in London
