Disinformation, Defamation, and Islamic Values

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.
