Organized By : Sentinel Project

All information, true or false, has a social life. The ways each of us encounters, believes in, spreads, and produces information has its roots in our emotions, our personal histories, and the people we care about and respond to in our communities. Since attempting to fight disinformation must address these social roots in order to succeed, what can journalists and scientists do beyond fact-checking? 

This panel discussion will convene successful disinformation fighters from Kenya and India as well as librarians, civic dialogue conveners, and experts on disinformation production to explain the social and psychological reasons why some people buy into disinformation narratives, and explore how we might more effectively change their minds.

Speakers:

  • Christopher Tuckwood, Sentinel Project (GAAMAC partner) 
  • Sebit Martin (Hagiga Wahid), co-founder and Executive Director of the Community Development Centre, South Sudan
  • Barbara Fister, writer
  • Gillian "Gus" Andrews (moderator), public educator, writer, and researcher

This event is organized by the NGO Frontline Defenders and will take place online on 19 October at 2PM IST.

Organized By : International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC)

While formal transitional justice processes can often feel out of reach to everyday people, civil society organizations and activists can play a vital role in bridging these processes and making them more accessible to communities. Reparations - be it symbolic reparations, restitution, or rehabilitation-- are one area that CSOs can contribute towards justice, acknowledging survivors of conflict and assisting them to reintegrate into society. In this webinar, join Ereshnee Naidu Silverman, Senior Director for the Global Transitional Justice Initiative, as she speaks with partners and allies of the Coalition’s Global Initiative for Justice, Truth and Reconciliation about how CSOs and other non-state actors can effectively foster understanding and action around reparations in post-conflict societies.
