Description

Join us for our discussion series on Democracy in times of the Covid-19 crisis!

Countries around the world are facing an unprecedented challenge in dealing with the global outbreak of the Covid-19 virus. The measures being put in place, while often timely and necessary, have real and sometimes unanticipated impacts on our democratic practices and processes.

Several countries have introduced fake news laws to curb the spread of disinformation about the virus. Do they help? Can they be misused? Experts from Germany, Egypt & Mexico join us for an interactive discussion.

Speakers:

Lutz Kinkel, Managing Director European Centre for Press and Media Freedom
Luis Roberto Castrillón, Verificado organiser
