Tech & democracy

Go for digital rights and combat digital disinformation.

Hateful messages, fake news and manipulative communication on social media are undermining our democracy. Through Civitas and the European AI and Society Fund, we support organisations striving to enhance the digital rights of users and calling for major technology platforms to be held accountable. Acting as digital watchdogs, these groups also highlight disinformation or manipulation via these platforms. In doing so, they serve as genuine advocates for democracy. They ensure society has a voice in the public and political debate around the regulation of social media.

Tech & democracy in brief

  • We strive for more digital rights for users and accountability for major technology platforms.
  • We raise awareness about the use of social media.
  • We help detect manipulation and disinformation via social media.
