The research project Reclaiming Liberal Democracy in the Postfactual Age (RECLAIM) is a three-year project funded by the EU's Horizon Europe progamme. The RECLAIM project aims to put forward new definitions, methods and toolkits as to how to analyse and respond to various expressions of information disorder on today's democracy. The aim of the project is to analyse disinformation in Europe and use the results to advise on policy making, education and actions to react to the negative effect of disinformation on democratic discourse and the basic structure of modern liberal democracy. The project is managed by the Institute of International Affairs and led by Maximilian Conrad, Professor at the University of Iceland's Faculty of Political Science.
The project brings together a highly diverse group of scholars, not only in terms of the disciplines represented, but also in terms of their nationalities. Thirteen universities and institutes take part in the project in addition to the University of Iceland: Goldsmiths College in the UK; the University in Ljubljana; UAM University in Madrid; Jagiellonian University in Krakow; the University of Victoria in Cananda; Scuola Normale Superiore in Florence; New Bulgarian University in Sofia; The Institute of International Affairs in Zagreb; the ARENA Centre for European Studies at the University of Oslo; the Trans European Policy Studies Association (TEPSA) in Brussels; the Institute of International Affairs in Prague; the Institute of International Affairs in Rome, and the Liechtenstein Institute in Bendern.
