How Europe explains the world. Conspiracy myths in European countries
It became visible once more in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic: They are there, they are organised and have no impediments to expressing their views: Conspiracy theory, transverse thoughts, or whatever they name. Conspiracy myths have existed for centuries with different content, but mostly similar. In our modern and digitalised world in particular, conspiracy theories often have easy play. What are conspiracy myths and how do they form an informed society? “Cross-thinkers” are a German phenomenon or reflect global, European thinking. Our guests, from three different social policy countries, give an insight into what is happening in ‘their’ countries. Together, we want to look at how each society deals with conspiracy myths and where the roots of individual myths lie. Our guests — Dr Tobias Mörschel, Head of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Italy — Urban Überschr, Head of Office Friedrich Ebert Stiftung in Czechia — Andreas Önnerfors, University of Uppsala and Erfurt, European Academy of Sciences and Arts, Salzburg Moderation Ronny Rohde, Researcher at Uni Rostock A cooperation event between Friedrich Ebert Stiftung and the European Integration Centre Rostock e.V.
