Confronting Truth Decay: a panel discussion

Institutional and Political Issues
Date: Tuesday, 22 May 2018 16:30 - 20:00

Venue: Residence Palace, Rue de la Loi 155, 1040 Brussels  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

Disinformation and fake news existed long before Google, Facebook and Twitter. But such online platforms have changed the information space, allowing for information to be spread instantaneously. What's more, fake news is a small part of a much wider problem: Truth Decay. Truth Decay encompasses the erosion of respect for facts and evidence in political life and discourse, and the blurring of the line between opinion and fact. We see this in public discourse, in our news and in the emerging imbalance in opinion relative to fact. At this pivotal time in history, we need to confront Truth Decay. RAND Europe's panel discussion brings together representatives from media, politics and research to consider the drivers and consequences of Truth Decay. Truth Decay is a threat to our society, but by understanding and analysing it we can find a way out and a way forward. 

The panel discussion will be followed by a drinks reception. 

16:30 Registration opens

17:00 Panel discussion with Q&A
