Project:

Illiberal Regimes of Post-Truth and the Tribal Mindset

My project will focus on organizing and facilitating expert and policy discussions to find good educational, media and NGO solutions to counterbalance the massive flow of fake news and conspiracy theories in increasingly illiberal, post-truth regimes. The target country of the project would be Hungary—the only hybrid regime within the EU. At the same time, I want to build on the experiences of other EU Member States where governmental parties and state actors are also involved in massive misinformation campaigns: Poland and Italy.
