Information Literacy as part of deterrence against "emerging forms of warfare"
I have been discussing disinformation with students here in the information school and we have noted how this has become a broader political issue, but it is interesting to see information literacy and social resilience placed firmly within the scope of a project looking at ways of deterring against "emerging forms of warfare", noting that "Together with the armed forces’ capabilities, such societal resilience can function as a crucial deterrent."
The recording of the radio programme is here (right at the end of the 3 hour broadcast, at about 2 hrs 55 minutes- someone from the Oxford Internet Institute was also part of the segment) https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0009z6s and the Modern Deterrence Project is here https://rusi.org/projects/modern-deterrence
