Lunch & Learn: The Challenge of Misinformation around the World

Recent developments in politics and technology have resulted in unprecedented levels of fake news and misinformation circulating in countries across the world. These developments present new challenges for policymakers, public health officials, scientists, journalists, and others responsible for communicating decision-relevant facts. In this Master Class, we will discuss prominent cases of misinformation around the world, why misinformation is often so difficult to refute, and the efficacy of different approaches for correcting misinformation about politics and public health.
