Please register here for the next online event jointly organised by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, Jelen and Political Capital: Disinformation against the European Union/ How could the EU defend itself in information space?
The European Union is now at the center of not only pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives but those of some EU member states as well. These narratives are focusing on questioning the EU’s reason for existence, criticizing its decision-making process, and drawing a very bleak picture of the Union’s future. What are the main claims made by anti-EU campaigns? To what extent does the EU have to opt for a different strategy when countering narratives spread by governments of EU member states? What can be the short- and long-term effects of anti-EU disinformation campaigns? What options does the EU have to fight disinformation?
These are the questions we would like to discuss with our panelists.
