NO ONE is free from the politics of information in this digital age, and whatever its shortfalls, the internet has democratised information and changed the way we create and consume information, including “fake news”. But what is fake news? Who gets to decide if news is fake or not?

This session will help unpack what we mean when we talk about ‘fake news’, ‘misinformation’ and disinformation, in particular how these are weaponised against human rights advocates, activists, media, politicians and democracy.
