Assembly Fellows team up to combat disinformation

2020 cohort convenes to launch new projects

The fourth iteration of the Berkman Klein Center’s Assembly Fellowship kicked-off just as the number of COVID-19 cases across the United States was beginning to spike, prompting — among countless other changes across the globe — a significant shift in the scope and design of the program. The Assembly Fellowship brings together a cohort of policymakers, developers, technologists, and other professionals to develop projects designed to combat the spread and consumption of disinformation in a tangible way. In late February, Assembly Fellows traveled to Cambridge from as near as Somerville, MA and as far as Melbourne, Australia. The cohort spent the first two weeks of the program in-residence, meeting each other and connecting as a cohort, learning together, identifying problem spaces in the disinformation sphere, and forming project teams.
