"Multifaceted Responses to Election Disinformation"

About KISIP 2024

Indonesia faces a critical political shift in the upcoming 2024 Elections, marked by a significant voter base of over 65% from Generation Z and Millennials. The predominant reliance on social media as their primary information source raises concerns regarding the proliferation of election-related misinformation. Effectively addressing this multifaceted challenge necessitates a comprehensive approach, spanning technological, political, and legal dimensions.

Objective and Scope

KISIP 2024 aims to foster a collaborative space where academics and sociopolitical observers converge to deliberate on and strategize against the looming challenges of election-related disinformation.
