05: Republic of fake news – How civil society and businesses become resilient to manipulation

-
Liechtenstein-Saal
Breakout / Working Group
in deutscher Sprache

Fake News developed from being a sideshow on social media to a severe challenge for civil society and corporations. Attempts of manipulation from third states increase this threat still further. This Breakout Session looks for ways to harness the diversity of social media in order to become more resilient to “alternative facts”.
