IGF 2022 Town Hall #109 Jointly tackling disinformation and promoting human rights

International Governance Forum – On December 2, 2022.

How can Europe and Africa team up to tackle disinformation while protecting and promoting human rights? Facilitated by the AU-EU Digital for Development (D4D) Hub, this Town Hall debate will foster an open exchange of ideas, experiences and lessons learned on how to address disinformation through a multi-stakeholder and human-centric approach. The debate will share and discuss experiences of African and European stakeholders tackling this critical issue as global partners.

This 60-minute session is organized in two parts: first of all, our three speakers will exchange on experiences and ideas to tackle the issue of disinformation from new angles while upholding human rights. In the second part, the audience on-site and virtually is invited to share their experiences and ideas to approach the issue on a global level.
