Katharine Gabriella Klačanský became a person of interest after working as an intern-analyst for the Hague Centre for Strategic Studies or HCSS.


Klačanský achieved a degree in Political Science and Government & International Affairs in 2015 at Simon Fraser University. In 2018 she gained a Masters in International Relations and Diplomacy at Leiden University. Proficient in French and Slovak as well, she was selected an intern after a spell at a human rights non-profit organization defending rights of migrants and refugees in the Czech Republic, who had arrived since NATO bombed Yugoslavia[1]. As part of her study, Klačanský was enrolled at the Clingendael Institute.

Klačanský wrote on her deleted Twitter account; "Attending a debate with top academics and experts in the field of #PoliticalScience, #internationalsecurity, and #militarystrategy. On the panel includes my ex colleague @TimSweijs from the HCSS".

Sijbren de Jong and Klačanský worked on a piece for the HCSS how to "counter Russian disinformation" in 2017.[2] Klačanský set up the Dutch summer conference named Answering Russia's Strategic Narratives with the Dutch MoD, TNO & HCSS in The Hague along with her colleague Rianne Siebenga working under Sijbren de Jong. After the First Integrity Initiative Leak leading to the exposure of their part in the Integrity Initiative, Klačanský was the only one that did not delete the following piece for her LinkedIn resume[3];

Copyright claim

In January 2021, Katharine Klačanský's photo was removed from this site after she claimed copyright of the image[From where?]. Klačanský also removed the section from her LinkedIn profile detailing her part as conference organizer[4].


Klačanský her Twitter account was deleted following her undisclosed spell after the Dutch cluster of the Integrity Initiative was publicly exposed and she left the HCSS. Fascinatingly enough, she opened a new account in April of 2021.
