Russia’s online disinformation campaign over Ukraine and how Canada is countering it

With Philippe-André Rodriguez, Deputy Director of the Centre for International Digital Policy

We were delighted to welcome Philippe-André Rodriguez (Exeter College), the Deputy Director of the Centre for International Digital Policy at Global Affairs Canada, at our April webinar.

He discussed his work trying to thwart the misuse of social media to spread disinformation and to undermine democracies, particularly in the context of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Dr Rodriguez drew a capacity crowd, with five-hundred attendees from Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America gathering to hear his views and put questions to him.

His conversation with Oxonians addressed one of the most pressing global challenges of our time, and did so in a lively and engaging way.
