The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing trends of attacks against democratic systems both around the world and within the EU. Disinformation campaigns, interference into electoral processes and covert financing of political parties are just some of the hybrid methods used by authoritarian regimes to weaken democracies which in turn have begun to develop innovative and comprehensive policy responses to tackle such threats. Speakers in this panel will assess the common challenges for democracies in the fight against disinformation and other forms of foreign interference, and will discuss the necessary steps to be taken to protect and reinforce democracy worldwide. In particular, what kind of cooperation and joint actions could be developed at global level to build stronger and more efficient responses?
