The dissemination of DIACOMET aims and principles is already leading to changes in the field of politics, public communication and within codes.

In July 2023, the Slovenian government has published official recommendations on the prevention of hate speech, prepared by its official Strategic Council for this purpose. A member of consortium from University of Ljubljana was a member of this Council, and he participated in preparing the recommendations for media and digital area, as well as a few general ones.

Recommendation number 3 also takes the principles of dialogic communication into account, which is a direct consequence of the dissemination of DIACOMET aims and principles, already leading to changes in the field of politics, public communication and within codes.

Similarly we have already achieved certain results regarding policy recommendations on the international level. A member of consortium from University of Ljubljana and a member of the Experts Group on media resilience, sustainability and AI at the Council of Europe, introduced the notion of public engagement and civic participation as the basis of dialogic communication also in the new guidelines and recommendations of this European institution.
