Integrity: Grasping The Initiative

This post provides links to discussions of the Institute for Statecraft’s “Integrity Initiative”. Most recent update is 5 November 2019 – the first anniversary of the original post – when verdict of Scottish Charity Regulator on the operation was announced.

Scroll down for this update and the original list which was maintained until April 2019, at which point the links numbered 185.

This is my first personal blogpost since April. At that time I referred to a ‘coordinated smear campaign’ against anti-war journalists, tweeters and academics, whose number included myself and other members of the SPM Working Group. The portrayal of us as “useful idiots” for some or other official enemy, I suggested, was evidently a strategic communication.

We now know a lot more about the coordination of that communications strategy, thanks to the recently accessed documents exposing the Institute for Statecraft’s so-called Integrity Initiative (here, here and here).

Numerous points of interest and concern emerge, one of which regards the high profile attack launched at our Working Group on the front page of The Times. Two of its authors, we learn, are named in the newly available documents. They – Deborah Haynes and Dominic Kennedy – have not so far responded to invitations to clarify their association with the “Initiative”.

What we do know from the documents is that a coordinated network was very closely following all public comments on such critical events as the Skripals poisoning in Salisbury, on which SPM produced its first Briefing Note, and the chemical attack in Douma this year, which was the focus of SPM’s second Briefing Note.

The working group’s third Briefing Note will be released soon [update, 21 Dec 2018, it is now published here]. Meanwhile, for anyone wishing to catch up with others’ comments on the “Integrity Initiative”, links to discussions of the issue will be maintained here below.

[Update 22 Dec 2018: currently the full set of II documents is available at]

[Update 4 January 2019, 4th set of II documents released and available, separately and in a single folder, at Also worth noting now is that while there are more than 60 articles on the matter linked below, still practically nothing has been heard from mainstream Western media outlets.]

[Update 23 January 2019: Since starting this post, our tracing of connections between “Integrity Initiative” and many other organisations, individuals, and anonymous operators has proceeded apace (see now 125 links below). At the same time, those of us asking the critical questions have been tracked – especially on Twitter – in seeming attempts to impute nefarious intents or interests in these citizens’ inquiries. This very post of mine appears to be depicted as at the hub of something (in graphs like those reproduced just below). So let me freely declare my interest: it lies in resistance to having the p-please-bob taken by the venal, malicious or stupid; if this resonates with plenty other people, it should really be no surprise. Given, on the other side, such disturbing insouciance about prospects of the war, both hot and cold, our work of awareness raising must continue.]

[Update 25 January 2019: Anonymous release 5th set of Integrity Initiative documents.]
