As we witness the proliferation of disinformation in today’s media landscape, the need for a concerted effort to combat this growing menace has become more urgent than ever. The European Congress on Disinformation and Fact-Checking serves as a crucial platform to address this pressing issue. We welcome you all to the 1st European Congress on Disinformation and Fact-Checking, focused on the theme of „Disinformation Across the EU-Ukraine Media Landscape.“ This event, organized in collaboration between Madrid University Carlos III and StopFake Ukraine, aims to foster cross-border dialogue, promote knowledge sharing, and develop innovative strategies to combat disinformation and strengthen fact-checking practices.
By bringing together leading experts, scholars, journalists, policymakers, and practitioners in the field, we seek to create a platform for robust discussions, critical analysis, and the exchange of ideas. Through interactive sessions, engaging workshops, and thought-provoking panel discussions, we aim to explore the multifaceted dimensions of disinformation, its impact on the media landscape, and the challenges it poses to our democratic societies.
