Building up resilience against fake news
Due to disinformation, a majority of Europeans believe that the migrant population in the EU is 16% when it is actually less than half that number! It’s just 7%. Disinformation distorts perceptions and shapes political discourse. It taps into people’s worries, amplifying them. Manipulated statistics, out-of-context information, and false claims about migrants and refugees are particularly pervasive.
This event is the first in a series of three which will take place across Europe (Brussels, Berlin and Rome), with the purpose of raising awareness for concrete methods for identifying and “prebunking” disinformation on migration. In continuation of FEPS, EPC and FES’ previous work on the topic, and drawing upon lessons learned from the ongoing refugee influx from Ukraine following Russia’s invasion, a new report will be published in 2022.
This first hybrid event in Brussels discussed the actions needed to build up societal resilience against disinformation and promote a more balanced and informed public discourse on migration. It will also offer an opportunity to reflect on existing and future challenges, particularly in relation to the displacement of millions of Ukrainians in Europe.
