ERC participates in meeting organized by CNE on combating disinformation

On January 30th, ERC took part in the meeting "The resilience of democracy in times of disinformation", organized by the National Electoral Commission (CNE) and which also included journalists from various media outlets. The aim of the initiative was to discuss issues related to combating disinformation in election coverage.

At the end of the meeting, it was proposed that a reflection group be set up between the CNE, ERC, the media, digital platforms, academia and international entities, to cooperate and share experiences and knowledge, with a view to creating more agile action methodologies.

ERC was represented by the Chair of the Regulatory Board, Helena Sousa, and Members Telmo Gonçalves and Carla Martins.
