Title: Governing the Information Environment?
Date: Tuesday 5 March 2024
Location: Level 4 Lecture Theatre - 201-440, B201, 10 Symonds Street, Auckland Central
Description: Calls continue growing to regulate artificial intelligence, counter disinformation, and hold social media companies to account. But how can we govern the information environment if we don't understand it? This talk explores the challenges broken research and response models pose to developing informed policy for a complex system and what can be done about it.
Dr Alicia Wanless is the director of the Partnership for Countering Influence Operations at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, which aims to foster evidence-based policymaking for the governance of the information environment. She is developing the Institute for Research on the Information Environment, a multinational, multistakeholder research facility. Alicia created a multistakeholder network in partnership with the G7 Rapid Response Network to support information integrity efforts in Ukraine. Alicia was a technical advisor to Aspen Institute’s Commission on Information Disorder and is a founding member of its Global Cybersecurity Group. She is also an expert advisor to the World Economic Forum’s Global Coalition for Digital Safety. At King’s College London in War Studies, she completed her PhD combining strategic theory and ecology in a new approach to understanding conflict within the information environment.
