Online Disinformation: Finding the silver bullet in the digital world

Involving diverse stakeholders working in the field in order to tackle this challenge on multiple fronts and through a more holistic approach.

The spread of online disinformation is a threat that can deeply affect our society by hampering the ability of citizens to make informed choices, disrupting electoral processes and breaking the integrity of our democratic institutions. Its complexity represents a challenge that needs to be tackled on multiple fronts and through a more holistic approach.

On this background, on November 12th ECAS is holding the Online Disinformation: Finding the silver bullet in the digital world event, which will focus on exploring solutions to countering online disinformation. By involving diverse stakeholders working in the field, we will take stock of the achievements made in tackling online disinformation in Europe and look at the way forward to protect citizens from this threat.

The conference will feature two interactive panels where decision-makers, civil society organisations, civic campaigners and academics will ‘challenge’ and comment each other’s positions on the subject of ‘online disinformation’. The panels will go through different aspects of the problem: the first will debate a possible regulatory approach to tackle online disinformation. The second panel will present efficient initiatives and actions to empower citizens and to build the necessary resilience to ensure a prosperous, safe and democratic digital future for European citizens.
