Conspiracy theories and threat to democracy in the classroom



On March 15, 2023, at 3pm CET, Landecker Fellow Nicole Rieber is speaking at an online event organized by the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt of the Leibniz Institute Hessian Foundation for Peace and Conflict Research.

At the event titled “Conspiracy theories and threat to democracy in the classroom,” Nicole will give an insight into the methods dealing with conflicts, conspiracy theories and democracy. Nicole will further “discuss the exposure to specific scenarios in which conspiracy theories play a role, and report on her experiences in the implementation of her project in schools,” the official program says.
