Join us for a panel discussion about the disinformation ecosystem in times of elections in Europe and how to collaboratively tackle this challenge.


This panel will kick off with a presentation from First Draft's Claire Wardle, who will examine the full spectrum of the disinformation ecosystem, with a focus on the European context. Drawing on the experiences of CrossCheck France, she will discuss the specific challenges news organizations face as they embark on fact-checking and debunking initiatives.  Her presentation will be followed by a panel discussion including Isa Sonnenfeld (Google News Lab) and representatives from various German newsrooms.
