Chinese propaganda and disinformation in Belgium, Europe, and beyond

24.11.2020

Tuesday, 24th October 2020, 16:00 – 17:00 (CET – Brussels time)

Interference, intimidation, disinformation, political and economic pressure: these are all strategies used by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) today in Belgium, Europe and beyond in order to advance Beijing’s “objective reality” and hegemonic agenda across areas such as research, think tanks, and worldwide media. The webinar will hence focus particularly on the disinformation and propaganda strategies used by the CCP today in Belgium, Europe and beyond.

The discussion is organised in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy to Belgium and the U.S. Mission to the European Union.

Speakers:

Samuel Cogolati, Member of the Belgian Federal Parliament, Ecolo
Zumretay Arkin, Program and Advocacy Manager, World Uyghur Congress
Lukas Andriukaitis, Associate Director, Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRLab)
