Forthcoming event – Fake news and disinformation in Europe, 29 November

The Cardiff EDC hosts a discussion on fake news and disinformation across Europe. An opportunity to reflect on the proliferation of misleading news stories and sources in the age of social media, how that affects democracy and the reaction from national and supranational authorities.

In this context, it is common to hear that Russia has become on the main state sponsors of disinformation in Western Europe. Is there an East-West divide in place? How is this issue perceived in the post-Soviet world?

The challenges of disinformation will also affect the work conducted by information specialists. How is it affecting established media outlets, research centres and experts across the continent?

The panel features Dr. Galina Miazhevich from the School of Journalism, Media and Culture at Cardiff University, and Frederico Rocha, from the Cardiff EDC.

Join us for an informal discussion on these topics. The event is free but registration is required via Eventbrite. Buffet and drinks provided.
