Presentation of the work of the Chair on misinformation, conspiracy movement and violent extremism

Since the beginning of the pandemic, theories and rumours of all kinds have multiplied at a frantic pace concerning coronavirus disease. It evolved to such an extent that the WHO has described the situation as an “infodemic”. Although false news and conspiracy theories are not new phenomena, they have grown considerably since the emergence of media and social networks. 

The experts of the UNESCO-PREV Chair coordinate several projects on misinformation, conspiracy thinking and violent extremism here. You will see an overview of the research program, as well as a description of the main themes and actions developed by the Chair.
