Information, disinformation and participation: discussing the new democratic challenges
The public events of the Geneva Democracy Week explored the influence of media on democratic debates.
How can we tackle "fake news", propaganda, and disinformation to protect democratic voice?
The Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy is actively involved in the “Democracy Week” that is promoted every year by the Geneva Chancellery of State. This year's theme was “Information, disinformation and participations: the new democratic challenges”.
We organised a series of events exploring how media—both traditional and new—have been used to shape public opinion and democratic participation, with a particular focus on Europe and the Americas:
