Drawing together experts across a range of disciplines, it seeks to bring cutting-edge research to bear on contemporary policy discussions and to foster closer collaboration in the sphere of information literacy between scholars, policymakers and stakeholders in journalism, education, business and diplomacy. It is convened by Dr Rory Finnin (Slavonic Studies) and Dr Sander van der Linden (Social Psychology).
