The seminar brought out latest thinking on addressing the challenge of fake news - including options for policy - and examined implications for the news industry, the digital sector and society more widely.


Delegates discussed options for regulation and self-governance, and next steps for industry and policy in developing public awareness and supporting greater media literacy. They also considered the degree to which fake news is affecting public trust in media organisations and political institutions, and the action that might be taken to resolve this.


Further sessions assessed latest strategies for tackling fake news distribution - including the use and potential limitations of fact-checkers; opportunities presented by new technologies, such as blockchain and AI; and new revenue models to support evidence-based journalism.
