Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy

From 6 to 8 April 2022, The University of Chicago’s nonpartisan Institute of Politics and The Atlantic will host Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy, a ground-breaking three-day event exploring the organized spread of disinformation and strategies to respond to it. The conference will explore the roots and scope of the problem, the next-generation threats posed by new technological advances, and the tools and policies required to neutralize them. Panels will also discuss the challenge presented when the term disinformation itself becomes fractious, and the tension between free expression and the need to combat wanton and wilful disinformation aimed at eroding it.

A list of confirmed speakers is available here.
