EU DisinfoLab is a young independent NGO focused on researching and tackling sophisticated disinformation campaigns targeting the EU, its member states, core institutions, and core values.

Our vision

We imagine a society in which every citizen: 

What we believe in

Education

We believe that multidisciplinary knowledge and innovation are essential for stimulating change.

Quality information

Our activities are grounded in evidence-based analyses, and we believe that citizens should be well informed on the source and selection of information they see.

Integrity

In all of our actions, we remain true to our ethics and vision, and when we’re wrong, we own up to our mistakes.

Democracy &
rule of law

We believe in democratic governance and norms, such as accountability and pluralism, and neither companies nor individuals should be above the law.

Collective action

When dealing with a complex phenomenon such as disinformation, we believe that multi-stakeholder actions are crucial for coming up with effective solutions.

What we do

Our mission

The Mission of the EU DisinfoLab (EUDL) to expose disinformation campaigns, raise awareness around disinformation issues and gather and support civil society resilience to disinformation to foster a stronger information ecosystem.   Fulfilling this mission requires resources that allow the EUDL to maintain its independence and provide objective and truthful assessments of the many different threats of misinformation that disrupt civil and rational political discourse.

 

Financial support is needed to fund our research, preparing reports, and responding to attacks from the perpetrators we expose in our efforts to provide this badly needed public service.  Tackling disinformation is an expensive task and comes with a large diversity of risks both for the organisation, its board members, and its staff. We not only need funding, but we need funding sources that share our mission to maintain independence and not become just another mouthpiece for a particular or partisan political agenda.
