Join The Research Centre in Information Law and Society  (CRIDS) for their webinar: 
Searching For ‘Truth’ in Times of (Health) Crisis . 

Spreading news has never been easier. At the same time, the proper functioning of modern societies has never been more dependent on the circulation of quality information.

This panel will explore the need to prevent the spread of fake news and at the same time, the need to enhance the disclosure of public interest information. ‘Good’ information must be put to light while ‘wrong’ information must remain in the dark. Where can we draw the line ? And who must do it ?

When: 28 May 2021, 2:00-5:00PM CET
