Global Fact 6

June 19, 2019 - June 21, 2019

“For the sixth year running, the Global Fact-Checking Summit (Global Fact) will bring together fact-checkers, journalists, scholars, and representatives of tech platforms, as well as other professionals and students interested in this form of journalism.

Global Fact is a practitioner’s conference: Participants come to share their experiences and learn about best practices to implement in their own work.

Global Fact 6 will take place in South Africa, at the University of Cape Town’s New Lecture Theatre, from June 19-21, 2019. This will be the first time that Global Fact will be held on the African continent.

Global Fact 6 will address some of the most important issues in fact-checking and misinformation, including:

  • Impact and reach of fact-checking.
  • Misinformation on different platforms.
  • Monetization and revenue sources.
  • New formats for fact-checking.
  • Acceleration and automation of the fact-checking process.

The International Fact-Checking Network will host Global Fact 6 in partnership with Africa Check, a global leader in fact-checking. It is made possible thanks to funding from Craig Newmark Philanthropies, the Duke Reporters’ Lab, Luminate and the Open Society Foundations.”
