Misinformation shared online could tip the balance in the elections in Brazil. Dr. Claire Wardle, director for the Information Disorder Project and First Draft, is a leading expert on how information is exchanged online. She will explain her interest in monitoring misinformation in Brazil during the elections and how newsrooms might be able to work together to better understand WhatsApp to learn what the public is talking about in closed groups.

We hope you will join us for an informal conversation on this important topic. A light breakfast will be provided.
