Resources on hate speech, radicalisation, misinformation and disinformation

Go to Resources

Disinformation and disinformation are issues facing societies long before the invention of the internet and social media. However, the power of “going viral” on social media has allowed disinformation to spread at a rate we’ve never seen before.

It is the impact of the rapid development of computing technologies that prompted the IEEE Computer Society to bring together researchers, experts and policymakers to discuss approaches to these critical issues in its technical form, Mitigating Societal Harms in a Social Media World, held in September. 2021.

Many during the technical forum asked for access to the resources discussed by our speakers. We’ve worked together to make these resources available to everyone. Be sure to check back in the coming months for more content on the important issues raised, including hate speech, radicalisation, misinformation and disinformation. We will continue to add resources regularly, so we ask that you: bookmark this page and check in regularly for updates.
