More than 400 security experts will gather in Riga to discuss the future of strategic communication and information warfare as NATO Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence hosts “The Riga StratCom Dialogue”.

“The Riga StratCom Dialogue 2017 will bring together policy-makers, academics and practitioners, to create a wide-ranging discussion on how rapid changes in communication are affecting all sectors of our global society. In an age of social media and instant information, strategic communication has become increasingly important. Technology is shaping our environment more rapidly than ever before, thus changing lives from the individual level to the core functioning of states. The information environment has allowed our adversaries to circulate their narratives globally in a very short amount of time. Therefore, we have to be informed and ready to be proactive,” the Director of NATO Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence Jānis Sārts explains.
