Jennie King is the Director of Climate Disinformation Research and Policy, leading efforts to translate ISD’s digital research into frontline programming and response. Through ISD, she helped found Climate Action Against Disinformation (CAAD), a coalition of over 50 organisations working to identify, analyse and counter climate disinformation worldwide. She has spearheaded investigations on climate denialism and ‘discourses of delay’ in the contexts of Australia, Canada, Central Europe, Germany, South Africa, the US and UK, as well as co-authored a number of ISD’s flagship reports on this issue. Jennie also helped design, and currently manages, the COP Intelligence Units on behalf of CAAD, leading over 15 partners to produce real-time monitoring of mis- and disinformation around climate summits.

Until January 2023, Jennie served as Director of Education and Civic Action at ISD, co-authoring the ‘Be Internet Citizens’ curriculum and regularly briefing government departments, regulators and multilateral bodies on approaches to media literacy.

Her writing and commentary has been featured across broadcast and print media, including the BBC, The Guardian, The Times, Channel 4 News, The Washington Post, Yomiru Shimbun and NPR. She previously served as MENA Regional Director Arts, Assistant Country Director Egypt and Country Director Hungary for the British Council, the UK’s international body for cultural relations.
