Practitioner seminar series | The power of social media? Information and disinformation in the digital age
Antonia Staats (Campaign Director of Avaaz)
During the course of the academic year 2021/22 IBEI hosts a series of lectures by practitioners in the field of international relations and development.
The practitioner seminar series is intended to give IBEI students and attendees an opportunity to engage with international professionals about their personal work experience, the organizations they represent, and to learn about possible career trajectories in international governmental and non-governmental organizations. Each lecture will allow ample room for questions and inputs from the audience.
