- The spread of misinformation poses serious challenges worldwide and it represent a growing threat to the future of democracy With limited regulation and increasing algorithmic determinism, democratic institutions can be eroded by misinformation spreading via both social and traditional media.
- Traditional assumptions about how different cohorts of people consume information, respond to communications and engage with digital tools are increasingly challenged.
- Evidence from behavioural science shows that information overload and confirmation bias can undermine even the most compelling messages and most polished digital tools.
- Government approaches to address misinformation are mainly focusing on regulation and education with limited consideration to behavioural interventions, such as proactively changing attitudes and behaviours contributing to the spread of misinformation.
- In a world where social, cultural and digital contexts heavily influence individual behaviour, a sophisticated understanding of human psychology is fundamental to develop effective responses to misinformation and declining trust in government.
