In her new book, Nina Jankowicz reports from the front lines of the information war in Central and Eastern Europe on five governments' responses to disinformation campaigns. It journeys into the campaigns run by Russian and domestic operatives and shows how we can better understand the motivations behind these attacks and how to beat them. What is at stake above all for Jankowicz: the future of civil discourse and democracy, and the value of truth itself. Extremely relevant in an election year for the United States and amid the coronavirus infodemic, Jankowicz asserts that when domestic disinformers employ the very same tactics as international criminals to attack our elections, we should not only be angry, we should fight back.

Nina Jankowicz studies the intersection of democracy and technology in Central and Eastern Europe as the Wilson Center's Disinformation Fellow. She has advised the Ukrainian government on strategic communications under the auspices of a Fulbright-Clinton Public Policy Fellowship. Her writing has been published by The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, Columbia Journalism Review, POLITICO Magazine, The Wilson Quarterly, and others. She has testified before Congress and is a frequent radio and television commentator on disinformation and Russian and Eastern European affairs. Prior to her Fulbright grant in Ukraine, Nina Jankowicz managed democracy assistance programs to Russia and Belarus at the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs. 

She received her MA in Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, and her BA from Bryn Mawr College.
