Dr Piers Robinson is co-Director of the Organisation for Propaganda Studies (OPS),[1] convenor of the Working Group on Syria Propaganda and Media (SPM)[2] and associated researcher with the Working Group on Propaganda and the 9/11 global "War on Terror".[3][4]

Syrian insurgency

Piers Robinson and other members of the SPM working group including Vanessa Beeley, Tim Hayward and David Miller have gained considerable attention for disputing the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian insurgency, most notably in the Douma attack, alleging a coverup by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, and extremist links of the White Helmets.[5]

Russia

Robinson has argued that there is no persuasive evidence to implicate the Russian government in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and says Russia has been blamed to distract from the West's "aggressive regime change strategy" in the Middle East. He said that there is no persuasive evidence showing Russia conducted any significant propaganda campaign to influence the 2016 US Presidential election.[6]

Labour anti-semitism

Robinson said that reports of anti-semitism in the UK Labour Party during Jeremy Corbyn's leadership of the party were exaggerated for political purposes.[7]
