On November 11, 2023, Professor Maiko Ichihara from the Graduate School of Law gave a talk at the “2023 GCTF Media Literacy Forum.” The forum aims to explore effective strategies on how democracies in the Asia-Pacific region, including Taiwan, the United States, Australia, and Japan, can work together globally to foster democratic resilience in the face of information threats such as disinformation and misinformation. Professor Ichihara discussed the impact of Chinese and Russian disinformation on recent social issues in Japan, using statistical data on the sources of disinformation, forms, and characteristics of influence, current government countermeasures, and the need for future cross-border cooperation.
