The Digitization of Disinformation Campaigns : How modern disinformation campaigns - whose methods and composition changed through the information revolution between 1990 und 2009 - can be countered more effectively (Arbeiten zur Europäischen Sicherheit) (Paperback)
Special Order - Subject to availability
The information revolution changed the way state-organized disinformation campaigns are conducted. Spreading various forms of propaganda, confusing half-thruths and pure falsehoods have accelerated, and social media made it possible to reach an increasing number of people targeted, in an ever-shorter news cycle. In the past disinformation actors mostly tried to persuade an audience of a single made-up story. Nowadays in the so-called post-truth era, disinformation actors rather attempt to dissuade an audience of the evidence-based story by disseminating an unending number of alternative narratives. At the core of this research lays the question how to deal with disinformation in digitized society.
