Among all the liberties guaranteed in a democratic regime, freedom of expression has a crucial role. However, in the information society, the right to free manifestation of thought is not limited to the informative phase, but extends to the protection of the recipients of that very thought, protecting on the one hand the general interest in news and, on the other, the free access to the plurality of news and sources. This session will take a closer look at the topic of the relationship between digital journalism and “fake news”, defining – in the current legal context – the possible profiles of responsibility attributable to media outlets.

Organized in cooperation with the Chairs of “Legal Data Processing”, “Advanced Legal Data Processing” and the specialization courses in “Digital Investigations” and “Data Protection” of the University of Milan (Prof. Giovanni Ziccardi – Prof. Pierluigi Perri).
