It is our great pleasure to invite you to the UNDP Oslo Governance Centre (OGC) Virtual Roundtable No Silver Bullet: Using data to develop context-sensitive solutions to disinformation”.

Date: Thursday 3 December 2020

Time: 3:30 – 5:00 PM CET

In 2020 UNDP OGC, with financial support of the Government of Norway, launched the Information Pollution Mapping Programme aimed at understanding what is motivating disinformation and how it is being produced and disseminated across different socio-political contexts.

During this virtual roundtable two of the eight UNDP Country Offices, who have so far participated in the program, will share their preliminary key findings to a panel of policy makers, academics and media. The panel will then analyze and discuss the findings, and identify ways to create a healthier and public interest focused internet – and by extension a more constructive and democratic information ecosystem.

The roundtable will be moderated by Niamh Hanafin, Senior Advisor Information Integrity Oslo Governance Centre.
