Cambridge Disinformation Summit

The Cambridge Disinformation Summit is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary research across information science disciplines to advance our understanding of the societal impact of strategic disinformation, methods used to disseminate disinformation, the psychology of belief systems and why disinformation is effective at changing human behaviour, & sustainable methods to mitigate disinformation efficacy.

Hosted by: the Cambridge Centre for Financial Reporting & Accountability, the Cambridge Psychometrics Centre, the University of Notre Dame Center for Accounting Research & Education, the University of Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business, the University of Zurich Accounting Faculty Group, and the Journal of Financial Reporting

Strategic disinformation is a malignant accelerant for major societal problems such as climate change denial, the rise and sustenance of extremism, radicalisation of terrorism, criminal fraud, and suppression of rights. It is exploited across all information dissemination platforms, including social media, news media, financial and non-financial reporting, and other broadcast vehicles.


Convene global thought leaders from psychology, journalism, financial reporting, political science, and related information science fields to discuss:

  1. the societal impact of strategic disinformation
  2. methods used to disseminate disinformation
  3. the psychology of self-deception and wilful ignorance and why disinformation is effective at changing human behaviour
  4. cross-discipline and sustainable ways to mitigate disinformation efficacy.
