Forum Talk 6: Strengthening democracy in the 21st century
Sponsorship: European Union
7 November 2019 - 14.30-16.30 - room 7 - Interpretation: FR/EN
Democracy is facing many challenges today. In Europe and elsewhere in the world we see a lower trust in the institutions, increasing political apathy, and political polarisation and fragmentation. Different kinds of manipulation and disinformation, especially during electoral campaigns, are on the rise, and highly polarised societies are the most vulnerable to this. But on the other hand, empowered citizens can now inform and express themselves as well as participate in decision making like never before. The challenge for democracy in the 21st century is to find the right means to protect the freedoms that come with more access to information, while limiting the risks that go along with them.
