Publications at the College of Europe #10 - Prof. Sieglinde Gstöhl & Prof. Simon Schunz

Season 4, Ep. 2

In April 2023, we are launching the second round of our Social Media Campaign to put the research and publications at the College of Europe in the spotlight! The College is gathering top researchers from around the world and Europe, so let’s focus on what they are doing and what their fields of research are.

 

Every week we will highlight a publication from our (visiting) professors or academic assistants. We will also release podcast episodes focusing on their research.


This week, Professors Sieglinde Gstöhl and Simon Schunz give you an overview of their book on the External Action Service of the European Union: Concepts, Approaches, Theories and they also explain their article in Foreign Policy Analysis on "Insights for Foreign Policy Analysis from European Union External Action Studies".

    The topic of disinformation has become a constant in the current security discourse.

Markéta Šonková (IRD) talked about these issues with Kristína Šefčíková, a project manager at Prague Security Studies Institute, a Prague-based security-oriented think tank. Kristína specializes in disinformation, strategic communication, and foreign malign influence, with a specific focus on the area of Central and Eastern Europe. They discussed the rising risk of disinformation and misinformation, EU tools aimed at countering these threats, the role of AI, algorithms, and modern technologies, as well as resilience of democratic societies vis a vis these threats, including during the most recent European elections.Learn more about the CoEnnect Digital Society: https://www.linkedin.com/company/coennect-digital-society/ Podcast theme music by Transistor.fm.
