Disinformation In/Against the EU. How Fake News Becomes the News?

EURACTIV Poland had the pleasure to organize an online conference titled „Disinformation IN/AGAINST the EU. How fake news becomes the news?”.

Together with the best experts, we discussed the impact of disinformation on the functioning of the political structures of the European Union and currently available instruments to combat the negative effects of this phenomenon. What is more, we looked closer at specific strategies for combating the spread of disinformation and fake news in Europe.
