About the event

In March 2018, the Independent High Level Expert Group on Fake News and Online Disinformation, commissioned by the European Commission, issued a report entitled ‘A Multidimensional Approach to Disinformation’. The report is a response to the growing controversy of fake news and online disinformation and, particularly, the threats these complex and multifaceted phenomena pose to democracy.
In response to this important and timely report, the Information Law and Policy Centre (ILPC) part of the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies at the University of London, is hosting a seminar to discuss the media, law and policy implications of the report.
It will feature an expert panel of academics, media practitioners and policymakers. They include Matthew Rogerson, head of public policy at Guardian Media Group and Martin Rosenbaum, the BBC’s freedom of information specialist. Joining them are University of Sussex law lecturer Dr Dimitris Xenos, and Professor Rasmus Kleis Nielsen, director of research at the University of Oxford’s Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism. The discussion will provide a fruitful platform for assessing the legal, social, and policy implications of the findings of the report, as well as for considering how the recommendations of the report can be taken forward.
