Stop the World: Securing democracy: countering disinformation in 2024

This week’s episode of Stop the World comes to you from Brussels, where ASPI’s Executive Director Justin Bassi interviewed the Head of Strategic Communications at the European External Action Service Lutz Güllner.

The conversation explored disinformation, foreign influence, manipulation and interference, with Justin and Lutz discussing the importance of countering state backed disinformation and foreign influence campaigns, how these tactics can affect the resilience of open societies, and what can be done to deter them.

With elections due to take place in the European Union (EU), the United States and the United Kingdom in 2024, they also discussed concerns around election interference, the types of campaigns that foreign actors are undertaking in an attempt to manipulate them, and how the EU can work with Indo-Pacific countries to counter these threats.
