The Project: Fostering Regional Cooperation of Media in the Western Balkans Region

RePast researcher Abit Hoxha presented the way that the results of the project can be used on fighting fake news in the conference Media in the Western Balkans: Crisis and Challenges. The presentation focused on how fake news is used in dealing with the troubled past when political leaders in the Balkans, accuse their opponents of being part of the former regimes, supporting former regimes, and being ´spies´. Hoxha explained how new learning methods such as the RePast treasure hunt and video games can improve teaching to mitigate fake news production and also help in countering historic revisionism.
