Un/Real: Whakakotiti – Responding to Online Warfare
Ka hoka a tāhono ki Uta, ki Tai!
This workshop is designed to give participants a greater understanding of the tools and techniques used to deliberately disrupt online spaces, with a goal of creating division and undermining democratic processes.
Participants will be given a case study as a basis to understanding the problem. Presenters will also provide information on the range of strategies, drivers and tools used in online warfare, as well as the impacts.
Together, participants will consider the different possible solutions, and how communities might mobilise to bring inclusion, trust and belonging to online spaces.
