The Power of Propaganda: North Korea, Russia & Trump

October 7, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

- Free

Propaganda is commonly associated with dictatorships, such as North Korea or Putin’s Russia. However, as Western liberal democracies are facing new and unprecedented threats – including the rise of right-wing populists and foreign meddling in electoral processes – the term has experienced a dramatic inflation in recent years.

In this lecture, Dr Olli Hellmann will address fundamental questions about propaganda:
How does it work?
Why should we care?
How can propaganda be distinguished from other threats to democracy, such as “fake news” and online misinformation?
