Horch, was kommt von draußen rein: Desinformation in Deutschland

Responding appropriately to disinformation on the Internet is seen as one of the major challenges for politicians, companies and civil society. In the media, the danger is often placed abroad. For example, states would be attacked from abroad by means of disinformation operations and thus undermine democratic deliberation processes or bot armies and click farms would endanger communication on the Internet in Germany and other European countries. Does this mean that it is a question of cyber foreign policy how to counter disinformation campaigns? Or is "go local" also valid here? Do German actors disseminate disinformation on the Internet?
On the eve of this year's Internet Governance Forum Germany (IGF-D), we want to discuss what the EU, governments, companies and civil society can do to enable online discourses to develop social power and minimise the risk of discourse manipulation by domestic and foreign actors. We have invited the following guests to an open discussion with the audience:
  • Martyna Bildziukiewicz, European External Action Service (EEAS), "EU vs. Disinformation"
  • Andreas Kindl, Director for Strategic Communication, Federal Foreign Office
  • Matthias C. Kettemann, Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI) and Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG)
  • Semjon Rens, Manager Public Policy, Facebook | Instagram
  • Tania Röttger, CORRECTIV.Faktencheck
  • Moderated by: Julia Pohle, WZB Social Science Research Center Berlin
After the discussion, there will be an opportunity to network over snacks & drinks. The event is part of the Networks and Politics series and is co-organized by the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut and the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG).
