1 hour

The Complex Relationship Between Digital Misinformation and Fundamental Human Rights.

But what if the cure for this information crisis is worse than the disease? Can tech platforms and regulators curb misinformation without suppressing freedom of speech and open debate? Mark Little, CEO and co-founder of Kinzen, has been working on the challenge of misinformation for more than a decade. In this lecture, Mark explores the complex relationship between digital misinformation and fundamental human rights. The lecture is brought to you by the Human Rights and Equality Committee in partnership with the Law Society Professional Training.
