Don’t Shoot the Message: Regulating Disinformation Beyond Content in Brazil

Leibniz Media Lunch Talk online: Using the conference platform Zoom, Dr. Clara Iglesias Keller will present regulatory strategies against disinformation in order to demonstrate the importance of legislation that does not deal with the freedom of expression (such as the criminalisation of individual statements and the strengthening of libel and defamation sanctions). The event will be held in English. Amélie Pia Heldt will introduce the event.

Start: 12:30 p.m.

Join in and discuss the topic with us! After the registration you will receive the dial-in details by e-mail shortly before the event is about to begin.


This talk focuses on regulatory strategies towards disinformation in order to demonstrate the importance of policies that do not encompass speech regulation (such as criminalisation of individual expression and enhancement of libel and defamation sanctions). It focuses on the Brazilian experience, where policy proposals have recently shifted from a speech-based approach to a range of mechanisms mostly based on transparency, accountability and user authentication.
