Propaganda Made to Measure: Dimensions of Risk and Resilience in the Western Balkans

A study that maps out vulnerabilities to malign interference in the region, and contains chapters on Albania (written by Agon Maliqi), Kosovo (by Ana-Maria Luca) Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia (all by Dimitar Bechev) and Serbia (BFPE’s Marko Savkovic).

The second part of Global Focus Bucharest “Propaganda Made to Measure” project was developed by this organisation under its Asymmetric Threats Programme as a continuation of its regional efforts to enhance awareness of malign interference and to offer policy-makers and other interested stakeholders an innovative, practical assessment instrument, which can be easily replicated and used proactively in the process of evidence-based resilience-building.

This week, on 22 May, the study was presented in Brussels, at an event organised within the Romanian Presidency of the European Union.

First part of the project, which also concluded with a study, was completed last year, and was concerned with four countries of the Black Sea region: Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Georgia.
