Migration and disinformation after the invasion of Ukraine
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 shapes perceptions, misleads public opinion, and distorts political discourse. Fake news and manipulative content about migrants and refugees are particularly widespread. To further divide society, such fake news often targets people’s concerns and emotions, values and beliefs. As a result, fears are amplified and perceptions distorted. Moreover, fake news usually spreads faster than facts, so after salient events, it is not facts but often disinformation and divisive narratives that dominate the discourse. This can become a danger to the cohesion of society and democracy itself.
But how to counter disinformation campaigns and fake news effectively? To this end, the Brussels-based think tank European Policy Centre (EPC) presented recent findings and recommendations of the FES and FEPS-funded multiannual research project “Disinformation about Migration”.
Afterwards, we discussed it with a panel of experts and the audience. The aim was to bring together representatives from politics, academia, journalism and civil society to exchange about new and progressive strategies in the fight against disinformation. This could render our joint efforts more impactful.
