20th Frankfurt Days on Media Law

Strategies against disinformation and propaganda

    Disinformation and propaganda have the potential to erode trust, exacerbate societal divides, and
    hinder political engagement. Over the past few years, the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia's war of
    aggression in Ukraine have accelerated the dissemination of misinformation. In response to this
    challenge, numerous countries have been developing strategies to address this issue. Notably, the
    European Union has implemented crucial regulations, including the Digital Services Act, and is
    actively pursuing additional initiatives such as the Media Freedom Act. It is necessary for the
    democratic societies to develop strategies to fight the spread of disinformation and propaganda
    while upholding the principles of free speech and independent journalism.
