The boundaries between the “online” and “offline” world have blurred. This is especially the case for today’s youth, for whom cell-phones, social media and digital technology have become an integral part of their daily lives.
From Online Battlefield to Loss of Trust? sheds further light on young people’s consumption of information and disinformation. The report is based on research conducted among 18-24 year olds residing in Central and Southeastern Europe for the purposes of Countering Disinformation in the V4 Region: Mapping Needs, Building Capacity and Generating Civic Activism, a project that’s financially supported by the US Department of State.
Having collected unique qualitative data from focus groups in eight European countries, the report also seeks to understand the complexities of the lives and thinking of today’s youth and its impact upon the political and social realities of our societies.
