Denmark Policies Affecting Disinformation

From ADTAC Disinformation Inventory


In 2019, Denmark amended its law against foreign influence on domestic public opinion to include social media. It is a criminal offense to influence public opinion on behalf of a foreign government and this offense can lead to a twelve-year term of imprisonment if carried out during elections. In 2018, the government announced eleven initiatives to combat disinformation, such as requiring greater transparency in political advertising, as well as collaborations between the government and media, emphasizing media literacy.[1]

Initiatives Against Disinformation

The Danish government created a task force to address misinformation, and is also pursuing media literacy campaigns with support from Sweden.[2][3] The government is also distributing brochures to help people identify disinformation.[4]
