      Disinformation Track

      Welcome to the Disinformation Track of the ISE Group Think Tank.

       In an era where information is abundant and accessible, the challenge of distinguishing accurate information from disinformation has become increasingly complex. Disinformation, defined as false or intentionally misleading information, is often disseminated with the aim to manipulate public opinion, sow discord, and undermine trust in institutions.
      Our Disinformation Track is dedicated to understanding, tracking, and countering disinformation. We focus on the development and application of tools and methodologies to detect and analyze disinformation campaigns, particularly those that leverage social media platforms. Our work spans various domains, including politics, public health, and cybersecurity, among others.

        We aim to raise awareness about the prevalence and impact of disinformation, and to equip individuals, organizations, and societies with the knowledge and tools to combat it. Our initiatives include research projects, development of anti-disinformation tools, and educational programs.
        Our work is informed by a global perspective, recognizing that disinformation is not confined by geographical boundaries. We have a particular focus on the European context, given the significant challenges posed by disinformation campaigns in this region.
        The Disinformation Track is part of our broader commitment to leveraging digital technologies and insights for the benefit of society. We believe that by shedding light on the dark corners of the digital world, we can help to create a more informed, resilient, and democratic information landscape
