Fighting fake news

An advert for Professor Baines' lecture on fighting fake news

Dr Victoria Baines’ third lecture in her Humanising Cyberspace series will be delivered on Tuesday, December 22.

Fake news, influence operations, disinformation, misinformation and conspiracy theories are different flavours of falsehoods that have one thing in common: they put citizens in the front line of countering threats to democracies, national security, and community safety.

Her talk will explore governments’ and platforms’ efforts to counter falsehood, and what citizens can do to defend themselves, their loved ones, and ultimately their nations from influence operations.
