Indonesia’s response to Ukraine conflict, Russia’s disinformation, digital development in SE Asia
This is Policy, Guns and Money, the ASPI podcast, with me, Olivia Nelson.
As Russia continues its attack on Ukraine, ASPI’s Dr David Engel and Radityo Dharmaputra, PhD researcher at the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies at the University of Tartu, consider the public response to the conflict in Indonesia and how anti-Western sentiment and Russian propaganda have shaped people’s views.
Now to a different aspect of the Russia-Ukraine conflict – the information domain. Anastasia Kapetas speaks to Carl Miller, Research Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media (CASM) at Demos, about the effectiveness of Russia’s information operations outside of Western countries and who is winning the information war.
Finally, Bart Hogeveen speaks to Trisha Ray, Associate Fellow with ORF’s Centre for Security, Strategy and Technology, about Australia and India’s engagement with Southeast Asia and opportunities to support inclusive digital development in the region.
