What are the differences between misinformation and disinformation? How do they each operate in conflict environments?
In these uncertain times, often made more fraught through the proliferation of misinformation and the purposeful deployment of disinformation, it is more important than ever to foster understanding of diverse perspectives both domestically and from across the globe. What are the differences between misinformation and disinformation? How do they each operate in conflict environments?
