Propaganda & disinformation campaigns during the COVID-19 crisis: The Role of Social Media
Date: Monday, 18th May 2020, 15:00 - 16:00 (CET - Brussels time)
The European Foundation for Democracy, in cooperation with the U.S. Mission to the European Union and Political Capital, cordially invite you to an online discussion with
Peter Kreko
Director, Political Capital
Anna Pellegatta
Associate Director, Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRLab)
The panellists will analyse the role that social media is playing in amplifying propaganda and disinformation messages during the COVID-19 crisis. They will discuss the main dynamics behind these campaigns and how social media platforms are used to spread propaganda and fake news. The discussion will also explore what tools liberal democracies can use to address and counter such propaganda campaigns. Transnational efforts and cooperation will be crucial in order to elaborate sustainable responses to online propaganda and disinformation campaigns beyond the context of the COVID-19 crisis.
