On 15 – 17 March 2018, the Post-Truth Conference was held at the University of Cambridge. The conference aimed at consolidating and advancing understandings of the post-truth phenomenon through collaborative activities and interdisciplinary conversation. The conference looked at the topic from a wide variety of disciplines, such as journalism, feminism, theatre, human rights and technology.
On 17 June, Sam Dubberley participated as speaker in the panel session on ‘Evidence in the Post-Truth Era: Human Rights Perspective’, which looked at experiences from human rights practitioners in gathering, verifying and advocating with evidence of human rights violations in the post-truth era. The panel was organised by the Centre for Governance and Human Rights of the University of Cambridge.
