On 14 October, the European Parliament Special Committee on Foreign Interference in all Democratic Processes in the EU, including Disinformation (INGE), hosted a hearing on economic damage of foreign interference.
In line with the mandate of the Special Committee to investigate foreign interference and suggest remedies, Louk Faesen was invited to present a concrete proposal for better public-private cooperation to counter disinformation: A European Information Sharing and Analysis Center for disinformation (or a DISINFO-ISAC). The DISINFO-ISAC is proposed as a distinct instrument to facilitate information exchange primarily between social media platforms, but also with government agencies, and civil society, as well as to improve the capacity of smaller industry members.
You can rewatch the Hearing here (DISINFO-ISAC from 14:14:52 onwards).
