Anti-Western propaganda is increasing in the Eastern European countries. The Center for Civic Participation and Democracy CPD-SNSPA is in the process of developing a regional project to monitor, evaluate and understand anti-Western narratives in the region, using a variety of methodologies – classic surveys, and also data collected through new instruments, relevant to understanding online communication. The methodological mix used in our research allows us to identify certain segments of the Romanian population that are more vulnerable to anti-Western propaganda and the paper presents the most important conclusions derived from our work so far. It also includes a set of solutions proposed by CPD-SNSPA in order to extend and improve research into anti-Western propaganda content, channels and possible targets, as well as increase resilience to propaganda efforts in Romania and in the region.
