Cultural Diplomacy to Counter Disinformation — International conference for countries of Eastern Partnership

Cultural Diplomacy is not only considered as a soft power that can help the countries to build communication and establish partnerships, visibility and release touristic potential.

From a long-term perspective, cultural diplomacy strategy can help countries tackle fake news and disinformation in different propagandistic sources.

What is meant by cultural diplomacy?
How can diplomacy counter disinformation?
How should countries help the voice of the truth to sound louder with the help of cultural heritage and diplomacy?
Can culture be the speaking trumpet of the dispropaganda? How to avoid it?

To discuss these questions and to share the best practices Berlin-based NGO CRISP with the financial support of the German Federal Foreign Office and in a partnership with the Civil Society Cooperation Program, announced the CuDi International Conference (Cultural Diplomacy to Counter Disinformation International Conference).

CuDi Conference will take place on September 3-5, 2022 in Berlin.
