Restoring Trust: how do we tackle the crisis in public information?

The LSE Truth, Trust and Technology Commission is working with experts, practitioners and the public to identify structural causes of media misinformation and set out a new framework for strategic policy. The four themes it is looking at are: journalism credibility, platform responsibility, political communications and media literacy and citizenship.

At this event the audience is invited to put questions and views about misinformation direct to our expert panel.
