European Union against disinformation

Awareness-raising of the risks of disinformation and information manipulation
European Commission

Being a part of the European Union has helped improve almost every aspect of Irish life, from how we work, travel and shop to the quality of our environment, our opportunities for learning and the way our businesses buy and sell goods and services.

This unique political and economic alliance is also the most successful peace project in history, but despite its many successes the European Union has been the subject of myths that sometimes cause concern.

However, these myths are easily debunked when you have the facts so let’s discover the truth about your European Union.
