XXVI Open Society Forum “Europe at the Crossroads: Civil Society, Media Literacy and Resilience in Europe”

4. Oct 2023

Over the past two decades, the fundamental values upheld by liberal democracy in Europe have faced significant threats, largely due to scientific and technological advancements. This has led to a fundamental shift in how our society perceives truth, particularly evident in the proliferation of disinformation.

The XXVI Open Society Forum will delve into the nature and extent of the problems associated with disinformation, while also highlighting the specific transnational and national dynamics at play. The Forum will explore potential solutions, approaches, and tools required to effectively counter disinformation. Emphasis will be placed on the crucial role of civil society, as well as the delicate balance between combating malicious disinformation and upholding free speech within a democratic framework.

Register HERE until October 9. The event will take place on October 12.

Simultaneous translation into Estonian and English will be provided.
