Peter Pomerantsev, academic and prize-winning author (Nothing is true and everything is possible), has toured the globe in search of the focal points of the 21st-century propaganda revolution – from social media influencers helping Duterte get elected in the Philippines to the Vote Leave campaign, via a notorious Russian troll factory and the flood of disinformation paralysing Syria. This event will be a fascinating exposé of the rise and rise of illiberal populism with a writer whose understanding of Russia is second to none.
