European Democracy and Counter-Disinformation: Toward a New Paradigm?

Improving global governance
Posted Dec 21, 2021 | Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

Disinformation and influence operations not only threaten Europe’s stability because of the anti-system narrative they fuel, but  have the potential to stimulate racially motivated violence and harm deliberative democracy. The digital manipulation of information makes these challenges difficult to address. In her report for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Sophie Vériter calls for a structural change in Europe’s current business-oriented information order. To tackle the narratives on which the manipulation of information feeds, the governance of online platforms must be accompanied by policies that build public trust. European governments and EU institutions must focus on the benefits of liberal democracy and pursue strategies rooted in the core values they defend - human rights, education, transparency, and inclusive dialogue.
