The role of media and particularly of investigative journalists have transformed the fight against corruption: leaks, whistleblowers, cross-border investigations and the use of new technologies, and data have played a significant role in it. On the other side, social media manipulation and the emerging phenomena of fake news counterbalance the impact of media on the benefit of those who cling to power due to corrupt interests. This plenary session aims to highlight how exposing has changed the anti-corruption fight and identify the necessary measures to deal with media manipulation and fake news.
