Understanding Ukraine and the Global Information War

Ukraine and the Global Information War

Cambridge Ukrainian Studies recently hosted the conference Ukraine and the Global Information War in association with the Legatum Institute and the Cambridge Committee for Russian and East European Studies (CamCREES). The event explored the dynamics between the politics of representation and international security through the lens of the geopolitical tumult in Ukraine, or what might be termed 'MCD' (Maidan-Crimea-Donbas). It posited that MCD marks a critical and instructive juncture in the evolution of modern journalistic practice, featuring, among other things, a burgeoning social 'media-ization' of the news and an extraordinary collision between state propaganda and public ignorance of a country in crisis. The conference sought to examine the civic, Internet-based and crowd-sourced media initiatives that have accordingly emerged as alternatives to state and corporate media outlets in Ukraine and beyond.
