Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy

Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy

Watch other portions of the event:

With democracies across the globe under assault, the University of Chicago Institute of Politics and The Atlantic hosted Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy, a groundbreaking three-day event exploring the organized spread of disinformation and strategies to respond to it.

The conference, April 6 to 8, explored 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 also discussed the challenge presented when the term disinformation itself becomes fractious, and the tension between free expression and the need to combat wanton and willful disinformation aimed at eroding it.
