Fake News and Disinformation in Chile

After the massive protests and riots back in October 2019 in Chile, the subsequent Peace and New Constitution Agreement, and the Covid-19 curfew, the country experienced a period of electoral processes in which a Constitutional Convention was elected. At the beginning of March 2022, a new President and Congress were elected, along with local authorities. Unfortunately, in all these elections, a phenomenon of disinformation took place. The Constitutional Convention is in the approval process of the draft of the Constitution and an Ethics Internal Regulation, which includes the dissemination of falsehoods and fake news. The presentation aims to analyze the enacted rules concerning fake news and related content concerning the freedom of expression clause in the Constitutional draft, which will be voted in September 2022.
