CRDF Global is seeking Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to develop presentations on topics related to countering the use of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) for targeted political outcomes and deliver them to an audience of Latvian and Lithuanian non-governmental experts at a two-day virtual conference in May 2021. Participants will possess a variety of professional backgrounds, including policy analysis, applied sciences, and journalism. SMEs will tailor presentations to a civil society audience.
SMEs will deliver their presentation and participate in a question-and-answer session on the first day of the conference. On the second day of the conference, attendees will participate in a virtual tabletop exercise (TTX) simulating the use of WMD against a political target. SMEs may be asked to assist in the development of the TTX, including outlining the scenario, drafting scripts, reviewing the exercise to ensure that it is true-to-life and facilitating the exercise during the conference.
