Policy Positions

In this statement, EU DisinfoLab shares its thoughts on the new EU Joint Communication on COVID-19 disinformation.
Over the last months, we at EU DisinfoLab, have raised concerns about the over-attention paid towards foreign disinformation. Disinformation is multifaceted, as we point out in a blog post.
We analysed the blogposts, statements, and updates in policies from the platforms to combine a comprehensive overview of the measures undertaken.
On the 20th of February, the European Commission released its digital strategy, and EU DisinfoLab has unpacked what this means for the fight against disinformation.
We’d like to thank those within our community who provided us with their insights and expertise, which helped inform the formulation of our proposals. It was greatly appreciated!
