Join the American Space Leipzig for a public lecture on how to tackle fake news and the so-called information war with Global Fellow at the Wilson Center‘s Kennan Institute in Washington D.C., Nina Jankowicz.

Nina Jankowicz is currently working on a book about the evolution of modern Russian influence campaigns in Eastern Europe. In 2016-2017, she advised the Ukrainian government on strategic communications under the auspices of a Fulbright-Clinton Public Policy Fellowship. Her writing has been published by The New York Times, The Washington Post, Foreign Policy, Project Syndicate, The Wilson Quarterly, and others.
