Dublin Room, Europa Hotel, Great Victoria Street
28th March: 12.00pm – 2.00pm

There is a history behind fact checking and the contemporary need for it.

It is important to move beyond recent narratives of “Fake News” and a “Post-Truth” world, to emphasise fact checking’s position in a wider context of human nature, interaction, and our inter-relatedness.

Come and participate in a discussion on the interplay of facts, opinion, and power, accentuated by social media networks as a means to manipulate consent. You will also learn what FactCheckNI and its partners are doing to combat misinformation campaigns, through media literacy and technical tools.

A light lunch will be provided.
