Through a collection of important articles, this book unfolds an interesting analysis of some rapidly emerging themes in the problematique of modern propaganda. It does so by primarily looking at how the European Union (EU) and some of its member states have acted to resist foreign propaganda efforts, and in so doing, tried to protect their democratic ethos and values. To inform this discussion with additional specificity, a number of information initiatives undertaken by the Russian Federation towards the Baltic EU member states and some of the Eastern Neighbourhood states are used as an illustrative example.

By reviewing policy responses against these and similar propaganda efforts, both at EU level and within various national contexts, this book also provides an in-depth overview of the challenges and opportunities that exist in defending core democratic values from hostile propaganda campaigns in our digital age. It also touches upon the methodology and the impact that these campaigns have had, not only on promoting or demoting certain information, but also on reinforcing certain messages and imagery, and ultimately on undermining the democratic foundations and modus operandi of each the countries under examination.
