DCN will use its global reach and network to host discussions on combating disinformation worldwide, sharing trends and practices that are effective across different regions. As part of this series, experts in digital communications, political analysis, and cybersecurity will come together to provide insights and practical strategies. Our discussions will cover a range of topics including identifying and countering disinformation, understanding the role of social media in elections, and employing digital tools to foster informed voting decisions. Each session will offer guidance on how to critically evaluate information sources, recognize bias, and understand tactics used in digital propaganda.
