On May 20th/21th 2021 Thomas Burri from the University of St. Gallen and Antje von Ungern-Sternberg, Director of the Institute for Digital Law Trier (IRDT), hosted an online workshop on “Democracy and Information Warfare – an International Law Perspective”. A group of international researchers presented ongoing projects concerning the nature and scale of Russian and Chinese disinformation efforts, the possibilities of public and private platform regulation, the principles of sovereignty and non-intervention, the notion of cyber self-help, and human rights issues. An in-person conference on “Democracy and Information Warfare” will be held in May 2022 in Trier.
