NICVA Annual Conference and AGM 2019

Primary tabs

6 December 2019 -
10:00am to 12:30pm

Theme: "Lies and Democracy - the fight for the truth"

The NICVA AGM and conference takes place on the morning of Friday 6 December. Registration, tea and coffee are available from 9.30am with the conference starting at 10.00am sharp and finishing at 12.30pm with lunch.

Our conference theme this year is: “Lies and Democracy – the fight for the truth”.  In a democracy the people need access to sound reliable information to help inform their judgement.  In recent times there has surfaced major allegations of voter manipulation.  The facts have been blurred and sometimes ‘alternative facts’ offered instead.  Allegations of Fake News abounds. 

Is this a real threat to democracy or did this always happen?  Does social media lend itself as a platform for disinformation?  Or can we tell the difference anymore?  NICVA will present three key commentators moderated by Seamus McKee one of Northern Ireland’s most experienced broadcast journalists.
