Biography

EU vs Disinformation is part of a campaign to better forecast, address, and respond to pro-Kremlin disinformation. The campaign is run by the European External Action Service East Stratcom Task Force. The team was set up in March 2015 after the heads of state and governments of the European Union (EU) stressed the need to challenge Russia’s ongoing disinformation campaigns. The task force is made up of fourteen full-time staff, recruited from the EU institutions or seconded by EU Member States. Team members have a variety of professional communications backgrounds and speak several languages, including Russian. The team’s main product to raise awareness of disinformation is the weekly Disinformation Review. This contains a compilation of reports received from members of the myth-busting network. Since 2015, EU vs Disinformation has worked with partners to identify and debunk over 3,500 disinformation cases (figure from November 2017). The site is the only publicly accessible, international database of disinformation cases. It is supported and promoted by the EUvsDisinfo Facebook page and Twitter account. EU vs Disinformation supplements their database with a large number of in-house analytical articles about various aspects of disinformation. It also collates and recommends many reports, studies, and articles by other authors on the subject. Apart from this publicly available output, EU vs Disinformation also briefs and trains EU institutions, member state governments, journalists, and researchers, and participates regularly in conferences to share their experiences. It is regularly quoted and used by politicians, governments, state agencies, researchers, think tanks, and journalists across Europe and beyond.
