Online Disinformation

Description

In forming its policy on the issue, the European Commission considers disinformation, or fake news, to consist of varifiably false or misleading information that is created, presented and disseminated for economic gain or to intentionally deceive the public, and may cause public harm. As it is a major challenge that is present in Europe, ECAS is aiming to understand how to counter online disinformation in order to ensure citizens’ access to quality and objective information as a central element for a healthy public debate.
