Strategic disinformation is a malignant accelerant for major societal problems such as climate change denial, the rise and sustenance of extremism, radicalisation of terrorism, criminal fraud, and suppression of rights. It is exploited across all information dissemination platforms, including social media, news media, financial and non-financial reporting, and other broadcast vehicles.
Convene global thought leaders from psychology, journalism, financial reporting, political science, and related information science fields to discuss:
- the societal impact of strategic disinformation
- methods used to disseminate disinformation
- the psychology of self-deception and wilful ignorance and why disinformation is effective at changing human behaviour
- cross-discipline and sustainable ways to mitigate disinformation efficacy.
Registration will open in early 2022.
The Cambridge Disinformation Summit will be held at King’s College, Cambridge.
A dinner will also be hosted at King’s College, Cambridge.
