Wikipedia is the only top 10 website in the world where content is entirely maintained by a community. It is also an important source of facts and knowledge about any major global development. Communities of editors and contributors put care and effort in ensuring that the information presented is true, factual and well documented also under rapidly evolving circumstances. What are the key mechanisms for transparency and good collective enforcement of rules? How does community governance manage risks of disinformation?
Anton Protsiuk and Mykola Kozlenko from Wikimedia Ukraine will present cases and stories illustrating these efforts around articles, imagery and conversations between editors. Mauritius Dorn, from the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), will give a broader overview of the disinformation situation with a focus on Kremlin propaganda and monetarization of disinformation before presenting strategies for dealing with disinformation campaigns.
