Jelle van Buuren talks about conspiracy theories on Wetenschap.nu
Conspiracy theories are of all times, and the government should never dismiss them as a fantasy of fools. Certainly not now, when it turned out that authorities made a conspiracy themselves with a journalist threatened with murder. Which proves that the truth is always more insane than you could have imagined.
Wetenschap.nu talked about this with Jelle van Buuren, terrorism scientist and researcher at the Institute of Security and Global Affairs (part of the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs) of Leiden University. He did a thorough research into conspiracy theories and tells us how this suspicion arises, how it can be tackled and how people can safeguard themselves against conspiracy theories.
