A vibrant home for disinformation activists and experts

EU DisinfoLab is an independent non-profit organisation focused on tackling sophisticated disinformation campaigns targeting the EU, its member states, core institutions, and core values.


What we do

Research

We continuously monitor disinformation activities across the major platforms (digital and traditional), identify trends and threats, alert activists and researchers to these, and make our resource pool widely available to collaborators.

Knowledge sharing

We develop and maintain an independent European platform on disinformation, providing experts with tools and resources to encourage collaboration. We collect and organise critical information, findings, tools and other resources useful for activists and experts.

Advocacy

We regularly make policy recommendations at the EU level and to Member States based on our own analyses, and help other activists ensure that their advocacy efforts are grounded in sound analyses.

Outreach

We organise regular events, including an annual conference, webinars, and workshops, which collectively assemble researchers and experts to share experiences and tools, plan collaborations, and keep abreast of critical developments in the field.

The Many faces fighting disinformation

A panorama of innovative, multidisciplinary actors tackling dis and misinformation

Civil society is rising to disinformation challenges with new types of expertise, but they are also exposed to novel risks. We conducted 14 qualitative, semi-structured interviews with civil society actors to understand how these initiatives were created and have evolved, and to examine their difficulties in terms of sustainability, security, and impact.
