Maria Pawelec wins the Student Best Paper Award of CEPE/IACAP 2021

 We are delighted to announce that our colleague Maria Pawelec has won this year's Student Best Paper Award at the CEPE/IACAP conference with a paper on deepfakes from an ethical perspective. The paper deals with the impact of deepfakes from the perspective of (problem-oriented and deliberative) democracy theory. It argues that many deepfakes constitute politically relevant disinformation or hate speech and discusses their impact on empowered inclusion, collective agenda and will formation, and collective decision-making.
