Combatting Misinformation – UN Webinar

The dissemination of false information, either without deliberate intent (misinformation) or with malicious intention (disinformation), is a growing global issue, which can lead to harmful consequences in public discourse. Behavioral Science can be applied to combat misinformation by encouraging users to verify the information and sources and discouraging misinformation sharing.

I presented some of my work as part of a webinar hosted by the UN Innovation Network, exploring how behavioral science can help to combat mis- and disinformation and how the United Nations and other actors are already using it.
