UnFiltered: Unpacking Disinformation

This show is brought to you by 263Chat Podcast in partnership with International Republican Institute (IRI) a non-partisan international democracy development organization tasked with advancing freedom and democracy worldwide by ensuring local leaders are more issue-based and responsive, assisting citizens to participate in government planning, and working to increase the role of marginalized groups in the political process – including women and youth. IRI promotes governance, women’s empowerment, youth leadership, civil society initiatives, strengthens electoral processes and conducts public opinion research, among other programs.

In this show IRI seeks to promote citizens’ access to credible information through raising their awareness on information disorders such as disinformation and misinformation. Traditional and new media can both be drivers of disinformation and misinformation. However, the advent of new media has increased instances of false information circulating among citizens. Such can be detrimental if not addressed or prevented. This talk show is one in a series that provide a platform for deliberations on information disorders encountered by citizens.
