Propaganda seems like a very 20th century issue. But it is back on the agenda due to the scandals provoked by social media’s manipulation of voters in the Brexit referendum and the Trump election.
This round table brings together experts on propaganda and the Internet to explore the populist problem presented by “fake news” – and how we can resist it.
This event is free and open to all, but a ticket is required. Online booking will open for events in the LSE Festival from 12 noon on Monday 10 February 2020. For full details see Ticket Information.
