As part of its Reinforcing Democracy Initiative, the OECD is engaging policy makers through its Expert Group on Mis- and Disinformation to understand the implications of – and potential responses to – the challenges of mis- and disinformation. The third meeting of the Expert Group expands the discussion by exploring what has worked and what has not with the various policies already in place, as well as examining the regulatory questions and responses.
The group will also discuss how civil society and business can work with governments to address the global threat posed by the spread of harmful and misleading content. This third meeting, organised in partnership with the Forum on Information and Democracy, the implementing entity of the International Partnership for Information and Democracy gathering 45 States, will close with a practical discussion of how the OECD and the Forum on I&D can support members and partners in moving this area of work forward.
