What is the Purpose of the CEDMO International Conference #CIC2022?

• To tackle the growing disenchantment with democratic processes, and institutional distrust and discord in civil society across Europe.

• To enable dialogue regarding the positive and negative role of tech in the European democratic landscape; identify areas where regulation can ameliorate problems, and advise on ways in which tech companies’ own actions could improve democratic outcomes.

• To mark the first anniversary of EDMO regional hubs in action.

• To build community and EU-wide resilience while protecting information ecosystems, democracy, social cohesion and human rights.

• To promote this year’s Czech Presidency of the EU, and the concern and efforts of the Czech Republic to mitigate the harm done by disinformation, and to support the European Commission agenda regarding the defense of European democracy.
