How to believe or not to the information Europeans are reading or acquiring via several sources, especially in times when outside actors seem to deliberately play a role in the opinion-making process on social media? How to filter the information flow, which by definition is disorderly to the extreme of human brain capacity? How to defend harmless citizens from twisted hints in a time where only a few specialists can really read complex and highly technical issues in and out?

While the Institutions and Member States equip themselves with new rules and monitoring bodies, while big enterprise like Facebook and Google pioneer for the first time counteractions in this direction, while EU citizens struggle to steer their own participation to public debates... here comes #EUevents contribution with this stock-taking on past and future events dedicated to this subject at European level.
