Julia Minson tells Terry about her work with the website providers of Mail2RU.org to help people in Russia gain access to independent media, addressing disinformation and propaganda. The website sends emails to individuals in Russia, allowing people to download software to enable access to international media sources, whilst protecting them from government surveillance.
Julia joined forces with the creator to provide her psychological perspective, and her expertise in persuasion and conflict resolution theory to address the wider problem of individuals who believe the propaganda, or who are on the fence.
