  • Luxemburg is a small country enjoying high freedom of expression and quality press. However, it has still been affected by narratives of disinformation related, for instance, to the COVID-19 pandemic or the Russian invasion of Ukraine, following the spread of hoaxes in the different languages of the neighbouring countries.
  • The awareness of disinformation is still recent, the regulation is developing, and the community is building capacity.
  • Luxembourg does not have a law penalising the propagation of false news as such and does not plan to introduce one, preferring to wait for European regulations to be put in place.
