Public Opinions and Reliable Information in the Age of Digital Diplomacy
The Consulate General of Canada in New York, in partnership with the Digital Diplomacy Coalition, invite you to a moderated panel discussion to explore the theme “Public Opinions and Reliable Information in the Age of Digital Diplomacy”.

This topic is increasingly relevant in light of the fake news phenomenon, as well as the ways in which new digital technologies have shaped governments and policies – and how citizens interact with their leaders.
