The invention of the internet has given rise to the potential of democratising access to information. Yet, digital spaces have also allowed actors to abuse their democratic access under the cover of free speech. Specifically, the attention economy accelerates the problem of the spread of disinformation within platformised digital spaces. What are structural solutions to the challenge of disinformation in digital spaces? In a moderated discussion, the dangers and methods of actors systematically spreading disinformation are illustrated, and the potential of (self-) regulatory and technical solutions to contain them outlined. The discussion will be rounded up by a statement of a representative of one major digital platform.

The Competence Network Online Hate is funded by the federal programme „Demokratie Leben!“ by the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth and Stiftung Mercator.
