Disinformation and the V4
The susceptibility of the V4 countries to disinformation is a significant issue. While it requires a variety of tools to face it effectively, we cannot get satisfied only with reactive strategies, such as blocking problematic social media accounts and websites, or setting up counter-narrative communication campaigns. Rather, it is crucial to work with the citizens in order to improve their information literacy and critical thinking, as part of a pre-emptive approach. Experts from the Visegrad countries wrote a publication, providing a clear picture of the V4 disinformation environment, the level of media and information literacy in their respective countries, and importantly, came up with a set of recommendations for ways the V4 countries could cooperate to help build societal resilience and counter disinformation threat in the V4 dimension.
