During the event, we will discuss the main findings of the research, which covers eight Caribbean countries. You’ll hear from regional experts and veteran journalists who’ll share their experiences with disinformation, media literacy, and the public’s trust in media. We will also unveil our eight-point action plan for Caribbean media workers to combat misinformation and disinformation.

The report provides a snapshot of the current situation facing the countries of The Bahamas, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad & Tobago. Over five months, the researchers used interviews, desk research, and surveys to analyse the issues of media literacy, disinformation, and trust in news. The full research report will be available in late November.

If you’d like to attend this event, please email by 31 October 2022 to request a spot. Please note that invitations will be sent on a first-come, first-served basis.


The event’s keynote speaker will be Mr. Julius Gittens. He will cover the importance of tackling media & information literacy (MIL) and disinformation and building trust in news in the Caribbean. Other speakers include our workshop facilitators, Ms. Kiran Maharaj and Nazima Raghubir, and regional journalists who will speak on their experiences related to disinformation, MIL, and trust in news. The event will be moderated by PMA’s CEO, Mr. Kristian Porter.
