National Security, Strategic Communications, and Truth Decay
in a Contested Information Environment
5-7 November 2019
The conference focused on how strategic communications and truth decay affect national security decision- making in the contemporary digital age. It involved dozens of scholars and practitioners from Israel, the U.S., and Europe.
Divided into various working groups, participants analysed the influence of disinformation, “fake news”, and subversive information campaigns on national security. The objective of the conference was to advance policy solutions to this problem in the fields of technology, regulation, education and digital literacy, international cooperation, and reorganization of the state’s apparatuses and decision-making processes. This conference represented a unique collaboration between the three leading institutions in the field in the United States, UK, and Israel.
