The International Grand Committee on Disinformation1 (IGCD) consists of "an international array of legislators, policy advisers, and other experts" who work together "to forge international alliances that bring shared, effective strategies into the battle against online disinformation." What could possibly go wrong?
The idea behind the IGCD came from four members of the British and Canadian Parliaments: Damian Collins and Ian Lucas from the U.K., and Bob Zimmer and Nathaniel Erskine-Smith from Canada. The first session of the IGCD took place at the end of November 2018, so they've been quietly working in the background for some time already.
Since then, they've held meetings in Canada and the U.K. and hosted seminars in the U.S., attended by spiritual leaders, journalists, technology executives, "subject matter experts" and parliamentary leaders from 21 countries (Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Mexico, Morocco, Singapore, St. Lucia, Sweden, the U.K. and the U.S.)
