12.00 Lunch lecture with Swedish Agency for Psychological Defense (MPF)

In this lecture, you’ll learn about MPF’s crucial role in analyzing and responding to various forms of misinformation. MPF safeguards the open and democratic society and the free formation of opinion by identifying, analyzing, and responding to foreign malign information influence and other misleading information directed against Sweden or Swedish interests. The psychological defence aims to strengthen the population’s ability to detect and resist influence campaigns and disinformation.

How do we create resilience to withstand foreign powers that want to influence our decisions, perceptions, and behaviours? What can an influence campaign look like, and how do foreign powers use polarizing social issues to damage trust in Sweden and our democratic society?

The lunch lecture will be held in Torg Grön in the Patricia building at Forskningsgången 6 from 12:00-13:00 (No registration is needed, but there are a limited number of places). Please note, the lecture will be conducted in Swedish.
