Time: 11pm - 2am (3 - 6pm, CEST)
The Alliance of European Liberals and Democrats in the European Parliament (ALDE) are hosting a seminar on how to protect European democracy in a post-truth society.
Fake news, propaganda, social media, new technology companies: this seminar wants to develop a holistic approach toward these different, but interlinked challenges, which have ramifications on the EU’s internal digital single market policies and its domestic and external policies.
