Beyond Fact-Checking: Exploring The Reach of Current and Future Efforts to Counter Misinformation in the Global South

Morgan Wack

Abstract

The talk will open with a discussion of the online misinformation ecosystem in the Global South, including the theoretical and real-world impact of regional fact-checking and social correction efforts in addressing political misinformation. Following this discussion I will detail the results of a survey-based study focused on Kenya’s 2022 General Election that tested the efficacy of ‘social truth queries’ as a novel strategy for broadening the reach of current efforts to counter misinformation.
