The Role of the Media in COVID-19 Response

Friday, May 8, 2020 | 8:30 – 9 am (Singapore time)

With more than half of the world staying at home and the economic impact of COVID-19 growing, examining the role of media both during and after the pandemic is more important than ever.

How can the news media ensure factual, verifiable information is delivered to the public? What proactive actions should the media—and the social media platforms through which many access the news—take to curb the rise of "fake news" and disinformation? And what is the responsibility of consumers of media? A video of the call, with slides, can be viewed on our website.
