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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Regulating disinformation in the EU - Cautionary tales from the US elections
Replay the session
Our webinar with Avaaz, the global campaigning and research organisation, is available online! Replay the session if you missed out! We discussed fresh revelations surrounding Facebook’s enforcement policies, the US elections and the implications for regulating disinformation in the EU.
Following our earlier research on the loopholes in the enforcement of Facebook policies, this blogpost focuses on content moderation shortcomings on Twitter and YouTube. In particular, we show that disinformative claims that wrongly link COVID-19 and 5G technology often remain undetected.
