Disinformation is an information disorder. The deliberate spreading of false information is typically done for political purposes, and often as part of a propaganda campaign tied to global issues like climate change, immigration, or public health emergencies. False content is already thriving in the social media ecosystem, where artificial intelligence tools threaten to make dissemination even faster and more chaotic due to a lack of professional filtres and clarity on the reliability of sources. Disinformation exacerbates many of the most pressing issues of the modern era, not least the health of democracy, political polarization, and unchecked hate speech. This briefing is based on the views of a wide range of experts from the World Economic Forum’s Expert Network and is curated in partnership with José Manuel Noguera-Vivo, Associate Professor of Journalism at Catholic University of Murcia (UCAM) in Spain.
