CAPD Foundation begins its work

“Center for Propaganda and Disinformation Analysis” Foundation is the first non-governmental organisation in Poland that is oriented towards a structured and analytical approach to the challenges related to information and psychological warfare. Our expertise is the effect of many years of gaining practical experience in this area and collaboration with various organisations and entities from Poland and other countries from our region.
