IIES/SNS International Policy Talks: Ekaterina Zhuravskaya on the effects of fake news and social media on politics

Seminar 2019.11.12

How is government approval affected by an increased use of the internet and social media? What is the role of alternative facts in political campaigning? And is it easier for populist parties to gain support in this new setting? One of the world’s most prominent researchers within this field visits SNS to talk about the interplay between politics, social media and fake news.
