The Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) will host a Virtual Fireside Chat on Friday, June 26, 2020 at 10 a.m. EDT on “Europe’s Counter-Disinformation Agenda: A Conversation with Vice President Věra Jourová.”
Věra Jourová, Vice President for Values and Transparency at the European Commission, is leading the Commission’s response to Russian and Chinese disinformation campaigns against Europe. Later this year, the European Commission plans to issue its new European Democracy Action Plan to improve democratic resilience in Europe and address the threats of external interference in European elections. The conversation will consider how the EU is combating Russian and Chinese disinformation efforts, how the EU’s response to Covid-19 has changed over the course of the pandemic, and what the EU is doing to uphold the rule of law.
