Margit Mayer spricht auf der Podiumsdiskussion "Protest and Policing in the time of the pandemic"

Freedom of expression and assembly are core features of democracy. However, restrictions to rights to liberty have been justified to prevent the spread of serios infectious disease. Regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic have therefore sought to restrict public assemblies. At the same time in 2020 the #BlackLivesMatter movement responded dynamically to police violence. Further significant protests in the UK in 2020 included protest events of Extinction Rebellion and protests over government response to the pandemic. The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill 2021 responds to these protest events and has immediately resulted in further protests. At the same time, Northern Ireland is experiencing a return to violent protest.    This panel brings together a group of experts who are reflecting on protest and policing in the times of the pandemic. Speakers will discuss continuities and discontinuities, as well as the future of protest, how it is policed and how protest responds to policing.

Curd Knüpfer spricht über "Fake news - no more? Disinformation and Fact-Checking in US Media"

The spread of disinformation has increased significantly over the past years, and so have its countermeasures: among them fact-checking. While the phenomenon of disinformation is often linked to specific events or media formats, it is a long-term development, with underlying structural forces that have shaped the US media system for years: resulting in an increasing segmentation of audiences, a fragmentation of the media landscape, and today’s highly polarized US society. While all of this poses a severe challenge to traditional journalism, “fact-checking” has emerged as an effective weapon to counter disinformation. Together with our experts, we will discuss this development from a journalistic and an academic perspective – with a focus on the US, but through a transatlantic lens.
