Targeted disinformation campaigns have undeniably left a troubling mark on the global political landscape in recent years. Whether the spread of misinformation by Russian funded actors, or the impact of the likes of Cambridge Analytica and Facebook on recent elections, it becomes clear that the spread of online disinformation has become an omnipresent threat to democratic processes.

Targeted disinformation campaigns have undeniably left a troubling mark on the global political landscape in recent years. Whether the spread of misinformation by Russian funded actors, or the impact of the likes of Cambridge Analytica and Facebook on recent elections, it becomes clear that the spread of online disinformation has become an omnipresent threat to democratic processes.

As we approach the 2024 European Parliament elections, understanding the challenges posed by disinformation and developing effective strategies to counter it is of utmost importance. How has the disinformation landscape evolved in recent years, which actors exist and what role does disinformation play in political processes? What concrete impact could rising disinformation have on the 2024 European Parliament elections and what measures can be taken to protect the integrity of the elections and better protect the public from disinformation?

We will discuss these and other questions on Wednesday, November 29, 2023 from 6.30 pm to 8 pm in our event with our panelists Rasa Juknevičienė, MEP, Member of the Special Committee on foreign interference in all democratic processes in the European Union, including disinformation (INGE2), Sabrina Spieleder, Team leader for Policy, Strategy and Global Priority Issues with a focus on strategic communications and information analysis at the European External Action Service and Matthias Diermeier, Head of Democracy, Society, Market Economy Unit at the German Economic Institute. Sandra Parthie, Head of the Brussels Office of the German Economic Institute, will moderate the event.

We look forward to your participation,

The Brussels Office of the German Economic Institute and the European Office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung
