Afraid of Misinformation? Don’t be!

A selection of Verification-Specific #ijf19 Perugia Sessions

We’re back from the International Journalism Festival in Perugia – and it was a blast. With so many great people there to meet in such lovely surroundings how could it not be?

ohchr

The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has been focusing on ICT applications to support human rights work for some time. Over the past years, the office undertook a number of initiatives and activities in partnership with experts and relevant organizations in this area.
