About this session

The upcoming 2024 General Elections are a crucial moment for the future of the two largest democracies. Discussion around the role of social media companies in combating disinformation, the importance of media literacy in a democracy and the challenges posed by disinformation in the age of technology are relevant today more than ever. The attempt through this process is to discuss effective solutions to protect the integrity of the electoral system and uphold the values of democracy while also assessing the preparedness of the tech industry in India and the US.
