Free speech for free elections: Social media, cyber-security and fake news in Ukraine

We plan to organise a 3-day school in Lviv for Ukrainian journalists and students of journalism on cybersecurity and disinformation during elections. In order to do this, we will leverage the knowledge accumulated at Umeå University as well as the experience, prestige and base of UCU in organising such events in Ukraine. This is an important issue because Ukraine has two decisive elections in 2019 (presidential and parliamentary) and cybersecurity and disinformation are not discussed sufficiently.
