PointTalks: Elections in the Pandemic – Marketa Jourova, #jsmetu (I am here) initiative

In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, important elections were happening around the world. POINT conference, which is happening online this year under the POINTTalks concept, will, as its first topic, cover the topic of elections in the pandemic.

POINTTalks is envisaged as a series of online events, interviews, articles and different other resources that would engage regional and global POINT communities about different topics during the time when we will not be able to organize the in-person POINT conference. We would have a different topic each month and these topics would try to be in accordance to the interests of the community and mix both global and regional topics and context.

One of the EU countries that had elections in 2020 was the Czech republic. We recorded an interview about different aspects of Czech elections with Marketa Jourova, coordinator of the #jsmetu (I am here) initiative in the Czech republic, an initiative that has been very active in organizing people fighting hate speech and disinformation online.
