PROJECT FOCUS

The Infodemic

Disinformation, fake news and propaganda are emerging as among the most powerful threats of the modern age. Facilitated by new forms of media and spread by governments and non-state actors alike, these potent tools have far-reaching consequences for human rights and media freedoms around the world. IWPR’s global networks of reporters, activists and rights defenders are working to document, expose and build resilience to this growing danger.
