A Conversation with Vice President Věra Jourová.

Event Overview

By: Amelia Martin

Russia and China have both launched disinformation attacks against Europe. Vice President Jourová is leading the European Commission’s response to these attacks. On June 10, the Commission adopted its communication on fighting disinformation in the context of covid-19. Later this year, the Commission will unveil a new action plan. The European Democracy Action Plan will help improve democratic resilience in Europe and address the threats of external interference in European elections

During CEPA's fireside chat with Vice President Věra Jourová, the conversation considered how the EU is combating Russian and Chinese disinformation efforts, how the EU’s response to covid-19 has changed over the course of the pandemic, and what the EU is doing to uphold the rule of law.
