STRATCOM SUMMIT 2016

“The 2016 StratCom Summit in Prague was organised at a crucial time when Russian disinformation is increasingly targeting Western audiences, trying to sow confusion, distrust and division. I came away from the Summit encouraged by the level of awareness and expertise across Europe, its governments and organisations, who are all actively engaged in countering Russia’s disinformation operations.”

General Petr Pavel, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee


The Czech Republic is taking a leading role in Europe’s response to disinformation, thanks to European Values Think-Tank- one of the top European think-tanks on this issue.” 

Giles Portman, Head of EEAS East STRATCOM Team

STRATCOM SUMMIT – Unique conference focusing solely on Russian disinformation operations

The Stratcom Summit held in Prague gathered 230 experts on strategic communication for four days comparing know-how and strategies during more than thirty individual sessions.
 

 

“The Prague STRATCOM SUMMIT was an excellent forum for getting to grips with the problem and especially in bringing together so many national StratCom teams, because to succeed we must work together.”

Mark Laity, Head of STRATCOM at NATO SHAPE

 

60 state experts on disinformation from allied and partner nations talked at restricted sessions at STRATCOM SUMMIT. We had 15 nations represented, some at level of Director of Communications at PM Office or head of national stratcoms. EEAS and NATO SHAPE stratcom heads had their sessions also.

 

I returned from Prague STRATCOM SUMMIT with 5 pages full of different ideas which might improve our STRATCOM system.

“The 2016 Prague STRATCOM SUMMIT was a great possibility to get to know different people working in that specific field of interest as well as their respective experiences and opinions. The discussions both restricted to state experts and open to all participants have broadened my horizon and gave extremely valuable insights to the overall topic of StratCom.”
