Since the use of digital communication technologies (particularly social media platforms and mobile apps) are increasingly transforming political processes and influencing in the political debate, this session aims to take the case of the Brazilian electoral process of 2018 in order to critically analyze and hopefully prevent the abuse of economic and political power in elections without jeopardizing FoE or enhancing censorship. By mapping such problems from cases analyzed for ARTICLE19’s publication on the matter (available at desinformacao.artigo19.org, in Portuguese), our goal is to understand new practices of political uses of the Internet and draft best practices and principles for securing FoE within democratic processes.
