Tinatin Japaridze is the Vice President of Business Development & Strategy at The Critical Mass, an international security “do and think” tank that implements sustainable security solutions by championing diverse expertise and innovation. The organization supports a number of important initiatives with the US Department of State and other international partners. Recent projects include: Dual-use goods and border security initiatives in Iraq and Panama; mitigating Russian public health disinformation in Georgia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan; Countering cyberbullying and strengthening media literacy in Georgia; Aviation security and chemical response initiatives in Kurdistan.
Prior to this position, Japaridze worked for the City of New York, first as the Field and Digital Community Engagement Specialist at the NYC Census, a mayoral initiative, and later as the Press Secretary for New York’s COVID-19 Response at NYC Health & Hospitals. For one year, she also worked as a "Go Big" Officer at the European Leadership Network (ELN), a digital campaign to extend the New START between Russia and the US. In 2021, she became a member of the ELN’s Younger Generation Leaders Network. Previously, she served as the United Nations Bureau Chief for Eastern European media outlets and as a U.N. Radio host and producer of her own security affairs program.
Tinatin received her BA from Columbia University’s School of General Studies, and an MA in Russian Regional Studies with focus on cybersecurity and digital diplomacy from Columbia University’s Harriman Institute. Her debut non-fiction book, Stalin’s Millennials: Nostalgia, Trauma, and Nationalism was published earlier this year. The multi-talented Japaridze co-wrote and performed an award-winning United Nations anthem based on the UN Charter, “We the Peoples,” and her song, “Is It True?” was the silver-prize winner at the Eurovision Song Contest representing Iceland in 2009.
