What are "information disorders"? What impact do they have on conflict and other situations of violence? And how can humanitarians better understand them and mitigate their negative effects?
Building on the third Digital Dilemmas Dialogue, we have called in experts from the humanitarian sector, civil society and academia to discuss how misinformation, disinformation and hate speech are affecting people affected by crises, conflict dynamics, and humanitarian operations. The debate will explore how humanitarian organizations can understand "information disorders", their main drivers and their likely consequences, as well as how they can be addressed as part of broader protection and assistance programming.
The discussion will be the last event of the March thematic path - Misinformation, Disinformation and Hate Speech.
The Digital Dilemmas Debates are a series of roundtable discussions between prominent experts and stakeholders from different sectors about the humanitarian digital transformation, its implications and the work ahead. Each month, they will explore a different type or trend in the technologies used to respond to various types of crisis, and offer reflections on what is coming next.
The Digital Dilemmas Debates are a component of the DigitHarium, which is part of the Humanitarian Data and Trust Initiative (HDTI).
