SFLC.in is organizing “Countering Misinformation: Policies and Solutions” a roundtable discussion to understand the phenomenon of misinformation and disinformation, and discuss solutions to tackle the issue.

In recent times, the impact of misinformation and disinformation campaigns in terms of inciting violence, mob lynchings and manipulating elections have reached unprecedented levels. The Internet has undoubtedly facilitated the spread of fake news due to its wide reach and the ease it provides to spread information easily.

This brings us to some important questions that we need to answer in order to engender a discourse to fight fake news. We will seek to answer these questions and brainstorm ideas to inform the policy debate around this issue.

Date: January 16, 2019 (Wednesday)

Venue: Office of MouthShut.com - 7, Pali Village, Bandra (West), Mumbai

Time: 1.00 pm -5.30 pm
