Dear Cranfield University,

Please could I see any internal or external communications relating to Dr Caddick-Adams use of PraegerU and other ideological propaganda outlets to promote his work? Was this discussed, questioned or approved by Cranfield?

What is the university’s policy on your teaching staff publishing in extremist media replete with misinformation?

Is Dr Caddick-Adams teaching students working within media operations, information operations and influence? Please could I see syllabi for his courses including any recommended reading and media sources.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Emma L Briant

Dear Dr Briant,

 

Thank you for your request, dated 27 December 2019, made under the Freedom
of Information Act 2000.

 

You requested information about

 

                                    " Dr Caddick-Adams use of
PraegerU........"

 

Cranfield University has completed its search for the information
requested and our response is given below.

 

Please could I see any internal or external communications relating to Dr
Caddick-Adams use of PraegerU and other ideological propaganda outlets to
promote his work? Was this discussed, questioned or approved by Cranfield?

 

Dr Caddick-Adams is no longer employed by Cranfield University.  The
Centre for International Security and Resilience, of which he was a
member, no longer exists, nor is Dr Caddick-Adam's former line manager,
now a Cranfield employee and therefore, any data previously held under
those staff profiles will have been deleted.

 

The only information that the University holds is in its Permission to
Publish records (from 2008) and relates to publications by Dr
Caddick-Adams in journals/books.  Please see below.

Dear foi,

Thank you for confirming all this - I note Prof Caddick-Adams seems to have changed his linkedin to reflect his no longer being affiliated too.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Emma L Briant
