Event Outline

On June 30, 2024, the Institute for Global Governance Research (GGR) held the 12th Zoom meeting as part of the GGR Intensive Seminar entitled “Countering Disinformation and Protecting Democracy” held in February 2023. The participants of the GGR intensive seminar are currently working on papers on strategies to combat dis(mis)information based on the takeaways from the seminar. During this meeting, the Okinawa Group and the Japan-Korea Group presented their drafts outlining their approaches to tackling disinformation, and the participants discussed the drafts to refine. Participants from the same intensive seminar held in September 2023 also attended this meeting and presented their group’s draft prospects. The meeting was attended by 10 participants from the GGR intensive seminar, Professor Maiko Ichihara (the Graduate School of Law and the School of International and Public Policy), and one GGR research assistant. GGR plans to continue holding regular meetings to discuss papers on disinformation.
