The summer school deals with the fake news spread by populism and conspiracy myths, which are used to fuel scepticism about political decision-makers and the reporting of established media. Democracy as a form of government is thus increasingly called into question and society starts to get fragmented. In input lectures, the media-technological and media-legal conditions for this are expounded, analytical methods opinion influencing and results of analyses already carried out are presented as well as possibilities of debunking and counter acting.

In the workshops, the students jointly take a look at platforms and social media through which fake news and conspiracy myths on various topics are spread. In doing so, they apply the analytical models presented. The results of their micro-studies provide an insight into the current dynamics of shifts in the perception and evaluation of social events and images of reality on a European level.
