Description

Reliable information is indispensable to ensure the resilience of societies in times of crisis. As seen in many countries, disinformation, misinformation, and hate speech can take root and disrupt efforts to effectively address the impact of the virus. How can these so-called “infodemics” be prevented and countered? During this session, the Forum on Information & Democracy, created to implement the Partnership signed by 38 countries, will present the achievements of its working group on infodemics, supported by the Alliance for Multilateralism. The European Commission’s Service for Foreign Policy Instruments will showcase its “Inform and Protect” project that aims at supporting national and local media in their efforts to promote transparent and fact-based information while disseminating tools to tackle the spread of harmful content and protect privacy rights.
