Disinformation, Defamation, and Islamic ValuesPosted on March 10, 2020
During her lunch talk “Disinformation, Defamation, and Islamic Values,” Dr. Zahra Takhshid (Harvard Law School) compared how intentional disinformation is treated within American, British, and Islamic legal frameworks. Dr. Takhshid emphasized this is a matter of legal sovereignty, pointing to defamation of non-Americans occurring on American-based social media companies’ platforms. The talk is based on a working article that aims to contribute to the legal scholarship on digital disinformation. It was livetweeted under #disinformationlunchtalk @SHARIAsource.
