The European Commission and fake news: Lots of talk, little walk


The European Union says to take disinformation’s potential harm to democracy seriously. Based on the outcome of the latest initiatives taken by the European Commission, one could wonder however whether Europe is really taken serious measures against fake news. This 18th policy brief presents a critical view on the European Commission response to disinformation online.

The research institute imec-SMIT-VUB specialises in policy, market, and user research in the domain of media, innovation and technology. Because we value sharing our research results with relevant stakeholders, policymakers and the public in general, we sent out a monthly Policy Brief related to either a topical issue or as part of SMIT’s latest finished or ongoing research.
