Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania: How the COVID-19 crisis changed the information environment in the Baltics
Please join the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRLab) on Tuesday, April 28 at 8:00 EDT (14:00 CEST) for a 360/Virtual event focused on how the COVID-19 crisis has changed the information environment in each Baltic state.
Though usually viewed together, the public health response in each Baltic state has been quite different, with their own prevention measures and different strategies of managing strategic communications. Each country has also witnessed different trends in disinformation narratives about the pandemic. Experts from each Baltic state will join the DFRLab for an hour-long discussion to share their observations and lessons learned on how COVID-19 influenced the Baltic information environment.

Facts and how we can work together to counter and build resilience against disinformation are more imperative today than they’ve ever been. 360/Virtual is a series of online discussions, hosted by the DFRLab, which brings together experts, decision makers, and our global community of Digital Sherlocks for interactive discussions focusing on the most pressing challenges of the day.
