Feedback form is now closed.
Fake news, propaganda, and other misinformation/disinformation efforts have started crossing borders in disturbing ways. Are facts submitted to cultural relativism? How can we understand and reply globally to the emotional power of memes /images and online rumours from one culture to the next? Are global efforts to counter this even possible or helpful?

Our panelists discuss these questions from recent experiences both on the transnational level -- through the CrossCheck France and CredibilityCoalition.org projects -- as well as within complicated local contexts of Sri Lankan Wikipedia articles and news across Nepal around its fledgling Constitution.  They will invite the audience for their insights as well.
