EU Elections In Times Of Disinformation

🤥🗳The 2024 European Parliament election campaign is overshadowed by disinformation, undermining democracy’s foundation: the shared reality of its citizens.

🔍🔎The European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) aims to “act as a reference point for data and policies on disinformation, public trust, media literacy, and quality information.” It is at the forefront of addressing this issue.

🛠💡We invited Mr. Paolo Cesarini, EDMO Program Director, to discuss his strategies and how governmental and non-governmental institutions collaborate to minimize the risks of disinformation attacks on EU elections and democracy.

Can this “war” against evil actors, fake news factories and AI be won?

Easy Recipes for Boosting EU Democracy

Europe votes in less than 30 days! But who is voting? Predominantly academics and people with excellent socio-economic positions. Young and socially disadvantaged people make less use of their right to vote, but only together can we find a path to the Europe of tomorrow.

During the MeetEU DemocracyLab 2024, funded by the Berlin Senate, 35 Europeans from 16 countries developed ideas to motivate everyone – regardless of their social background – to vote.

We present these recipes for a strong democracy so you can use them in your city, university, or village.

Facing New Challenges – Is Today’s EU Ready to Last?

This week, some 400 Million Europeans will shape their continent’s future by voting for a new European Parliament. For more than 13 years, Klaus Welle has administratively put this institution at the heart of EU democracy as secretary general of the European Parliament.

While advocating for a stronger parliament with more competencies, Welle also shaped the physical character of the institution to make it more transparent: The EP’s House of History, its new visitor center in Brussels. Politically, he calls for a sustainable European Union ready to last, along with the seven D-Notions: Debt, Defence, Democracy, Demography, Digital, De-carbonisation, and De-globalisation.

Join our special election event to discuss the Future of the European Union with someone who knows the functioning of the European Parliament by heart. Share your views on what it takes to make the European Union a lasting success for future generations.
