Podcast about Media Literacy in Post-Soviet Baltics

The Consortium for Media Literacy (CML) has launched a podcast series with a first interview by CML’s Tessa Jolls with Guna Spurava, Head of UNESCO MIL Chair, University of Latvia. In this interview Tess and Guna discuss how media literacy is finding its place in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia where it is actually seen as a strategic defense priority by governments in the Baltics, where disinformation campaigns from Russia are influencing populations that, because of dislocations and relocations during the Soviet era, are Russian-speaking and of Russian descent.  The NATO Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence has made disinformation/misinformation a priority; the EU publishes a monthly newsletter called “The Disinformation Review” that focuses on Russian campaigns, calling out errors.
