Monday 17th August – 11 am to midday (AEST)
Misinformation is no longer just a buzzword. From the 2019 elections and bushfires, to the ongoing debate around 5G and the current COVID-19 situation, online misinformation has become a regular feature of public discourse and had dramatic real world consequences.
As Australia develops a code of practice for online misinformation, it is timely to consider the evolving problem, trends and paradigms that inform public policy approaches around the globe. What does a future facing, joined-up approach look like, and how does it serve the broad spectrum of society?
Join the IIC Australian Chapter (IICA) and our guest speakers as we:
Australia’s proposed voluntary code of practice for online misinformation, its
key elements, role and resource demands
Taiwan’s outcomes-based misinformation code, its background and effectiveness
- Discuss Google’s public policy approach to misinformation in the Asia Pacific region and the role of international coordination
- Consider First Draft’s experience in applying its three part typology for information disorder and reflect on either the similarities and differences across jurisdictions.
The discussion will be moderated by Sophie Kowald, Editor, Intermedia and Co-Vice President of the IIC Australian Chapter.
