We are delighted to announce that Konrad Adenauer Stiftung in cooperation with the Stockholm Free World Forum (Frivärld) will host the mini conference Information Warfare and the Weaponization of Democracy on February 13 in Stockholm.
In September 2018, Sweden is holding parliamentary elections. Since Russian interference in elections processes and destabilizing efforts in a number of Western countries became known, information warfare and destabilization attempts by foreign actors are at the top of the security policy agenda in many countries.
How does information warfare play out in 2018? What lessons can be learned from influence efforts across the West? How well prepared are the key actors and stakeholders in Sweden in the wake of the election campaign? These are some of the issues that will be discussed during this half day event.
