FactcheckEU is Europe’s first crowd-checking platform. It is born out of the belief that as the EU becomes ever more integrated it becomes increasingly essential to develop watchdogs capable of monitoring the political debate.
Users have a key role to play on this website: they can upload statements and verify them alongside the FactcheckEU team, making sure political leaders get their facts straight. (See Community section for more details)
FactcheckEU will strive to be a platform that promotes a collaborative and bottom-up approach to the European debate, rooted in numbers and facts rather than stereotypes and prejudices.
The project is run by NumbersEU, a non-profit organisation set up by Pagella Politica (Italy’s top fact-checking website). It is made possible thanks to a generous grant from Stiftung Mercator.
