The Media’s View of Legislation Against Fake News: Russian and International Experience

Wednesday, 15 May
09:00 - 10:00

Hyde Park, General Staff Building (6-8, Dvortsovaya sq.)



International practices with respect to regulating the distribution of information suggest a further toughening of laws in the digital sphere in order to counter disinformation. That said, approaches to regulating information are not systematic either in Russia or abroad. As a result, it is necessary to monitor the regulation of both traditional and new media with a view to balancing the interests of the media community, citizens and the state.

At the working breakfast, participants will discuss international experience based on the examples of Russia, the US and European countries, as well as the approaches of Asian countries, and will also give their expert assessment of the prospects for legislation regulating the media.
