From 10 to 18 July 2022, the College of Europe in Natolin, the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF), and the Polish-American Freedom Foundation (PAFF) organised the 10th edition of the Warsaw Euro-Atlantic Summer Academy (WEASA). This year's theme was:

"Information war and the new geopolitical reality"

WEASA is a summer programme addressed to experts – such as analysts, political advisors, think thank and NGO employees, civil servants, and journalists – coming from Eastern Partnership, Western Balkans countries, and Poland.

The 10th edition of WEASA addressed two broad themes in connection with Russia's war against Ukraine: 1) the information war which was taking place before, during, and after the physical war; and 2) the new geopolitical reality manifested as a result of the war.

WEASA 2022 occurred in person at the College of Europe in Natolin, and discussed several topics, including:

  • Russia's war against Ukraine and the new geopolitical reality;
  • European integration and the war in Ukraine: What's next for Eastern Partnership?;
  • European integration and the war in Ukraine: What next for Western Balkans?;
  • Media literacy and resilience towards disinformation;
  • Open Source Intelligence and Investigations;
  • Personal digital security;
  • How social media companies are responding to the war?;
  • Citizen journalism / what is it, and how does it works?;
  • Surveillance technologies as a threat to democracy?;
