Background

The 2016 elections in the United States of America brought to the fore the debate on “fake news” and how it impacts societal organizations and development processes. The Inter Region Economic Network (IREN) has selected the “Fake News” theme for its 15th IREN Eastern Africa Media Forum (IRENEAMF2017) to explore how this phenomenon impacts the region. Looked at from the African context, the region has always grappled with statistical hoaxes, propaganda and disinformation coming from well-established international, national, local media and other sources purporting to be offering objective information. The TWO day forum is open to journalists, governance, economic development experts,the academia and ICT experts.

Day 1: Market Place of Ideas: Keynote address to be delivered by the senior political analyst from East Africa to set the tempo for the meeting. This will be followed by researched presentations from consumers of information, ICT practitioners, data experts and journalists in three main panels.

Day 2: Poster Exhibition on East Africa Hoaxes, Propaganda and Disinformation. This will be followed by a “Hot Seat” discussion on “How to Survive in the World of Fake News.”

*All events will be open to Social Media participation and the final outcomes published for media dissemination.
