The European Policy Centre (EPC), the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) are pleased to invite you to this hybrid Policy Dialogue on Wednesday, 28 September 2022, from 16.00-17.30 (CET).

Disinformation distorts perceptions and contributes to shaping the political discourse. It appeals to people’s beliefs and taps into their worries, even amplifying them. Manipulated statistics, out-of-context information and false claims about migrants and refugees are particularly pervasive. Disinformation narratives frame them as a fundamental threat to Europeans’ health, wealth and identity.

This hybrid event will discuss the actions needed to build up societal resilience against disinformation and promote a more balanced and informed public discourse on migration. Drawing on EPC studies supported by FES and FEPS, it will also offer an opportunity to reflect on existing and future challenges, particularly in relation to the displacement of millions of Ukrainians in Europe.

In case of questions, please get in touch with Anastasia Karatzas.
