Taipei Consultations | At the frontlines of disinformation: can Taiwan inspire democracy worldwide?

🗺️ Bangka Boulevard, No. 110, Wanhua District. Taipei

🗓️ January 10th, 2023

🕰️ 7 pm


✊ What?  

Join us to discuss what the world can learn from Taiwan's innovative democratic model & its use of modern technologies to enhance participation!

Given Chinese territorial claims, particularly at the height of election cycles, Taiwan faces waves of disinformation from China. What are strategies that Taiwan has taken to adapt to this challenge? Can other countries learn from Taiwan regarding this? 

One notes that combating disinformation involves treading a line between preserving freedoms of speech while also preventing the spread of deliberately erroneous information with a political end in mind. Taiwan faces this issue, as do other countries globally. This discussion will explore this question.

🧐 Why?

This event opens a series of consultations across the globe to crowdsource what a democratic system of global governance should look like. Let's together identify how Taiwan's model can be used in global governance & how to best counter authoritarianism.

So let's get started with this event!

📝 Format:

The event will start with a panel discussion, followed by focus groups to: 1) Identify issues with today's democracies & global governance; 2) Prioritize the topics to be discussed; 3) Come up with solutions 

After this event, we will log the results into our consultation platform and encourage participants to continue the discussion online!
