In the Age of Hybrid Warfare – Misinformation as a Weapon

SAAB and YPFP have joined forces once again to bring you an expert panel of speakers to discuss misinformation/disinformation and hybrid warfare. Opinions differ on what exactly constitutes a 'hybrid threat', but the concept of 'misinformation' has recently become a critical issue on the global political agenda, particularly in Europe. We can all think of examples of misinformation being used - in reality or allegedly - to influence the outcomes of national elections or referendums. Misinformation is therefore not just about facts being distorted, but can have a real impact on political stability. The hyperconnected world we live in brings new threats and new challenges - and this event will attempt to provide answers.

Are you curious to know more about the various actors behind misinformation campaigns? Or how “information warfare” takes place?

Then join us on Tuesday 23rd of May to discuss these issues, as well as to delve into case studies of misinformation influencing various aspects of our lives. Free alcoholic beverages will be available after the event.
