Illustrasjons-/bannerbilde for  Law and Disinformation workshop - Call for papers!

Disinformation, while not a new phenomenon, has become widespread with the rise of internet and social media, as well as the involvement of state actors in organised and systematic disinformation campaigns. 

As modern society continues to grapple with disinformation and its consequences, the Faculty of Law at UiT in cooperation with the FAKENEWS Project is organising a workshop to discuss the role of law as a response to disinformation. 

The workshop will take place on 24 October 2024 in Tromsø, Norway.

The workshop organisers invite submissions exploring legal perspectives on disinformation. The submissions may relate to any area of law, be it domestic or international. Sociolegal, critical, political, and other interdisciplinary approaches to exploring the role of law in dealing with disinformation are also welcome.

Scholars interested in participating in the workshop should submit an abstract (up to 500 words), short bio (up to 150 words), and CV to by 15 June 2024.
