THE INTEGRITY INITIATIVE: BID FOR MoD FUNDING 2017-2018

Introduction:

The Integrity Initiative was set up in 2016 by The Institute for Statecraft in cooperation with the Free University of Brussels (VUB) to bring to the attention of policy-makers, military leaders and the general public the threat posed to democratic institutions in the United Kingdom and across Europe by Russia. The specific focus of the Initiative concerns disinformation, the deliberate spreading of false information aimed at destabilising Western societies, and sowing confusion and mistrust in our institutions; but the programme goes further, looking at all manner of threats under the banner of hybrid warfare and extending to the threat of military action against the West.

1. Success so far

  • Organised visit to the UK by the Lithuanian StratComms team; as a result of their briefing 77 Brigade adopted the Lithuanian approach
  • Organised visit to the UK by a Ukrainian Special Forces team; in a series of meetings with their UK counterparts they passed on invaluable information about how they are dealing with Russian military operations in Eastern Ukraine
  • Briefing of journalists has led to stories in newspapers and online, including the lead front-page story in The Times on 17 Dec 2016
  • Discussions with NATO allies have led to formation of groups looking into active measures in France, Spain, Greece
  • Extensive amount of published material on the threat (see Appendix A)

2. Budget- How much money are you asking for this project? (Different amounts for different levels of project is fine, but we need specifics on how much for what. Is there funding from other sources? What about long-term)

3. Audiences

  • Armed Forces
  • Journalists
  • General Public

4. Activities

  • Illustrating to the UK military that disinformation and Russian active measures are just one element of what Russia regards already as a wartime situation (this is clear from studying their own writings); showing that there is not simply one obvious military approach from the Russian side (ongoing)
  • One-on-one briefings for politicians, senior military, journalists (ongoing)
  • Well-researched articles, published on our own and partner websites (ongoing)
  • Active Twitter feed to growing number of followers (183 as at 22/03/17, up from 29 in mid-Feb) (ongoing)
  • Creation of a Europe-wide network of groups who understand the danger of Russian active measures and who can pass the message on to their own decision-makers and public, often using material which we initiate; conference planned for June 2017 in The Netherlands (expanding what we are currently doing)
  • Bringing together active groups from across Europe, such as the StratComms team at the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry with counterparts in the UK and elsewhere (ongoing)

5. Performance indicators:

  • Tougher stance in government policy towards Russia
  • Better understanding of the military threat to the UK
  • More information published in the media on the threat of Russian active measures
  • Growth of network across Europe
  • Increase in number of followers on Twitter
  • Increased education of young generation on disinformation and threats posed by social media
  • Greater awareness in all areas of society of the threat posed by Russian active measures to UK’s democratic institutions
