Disinformation by malign influences is spreading across the Middle East and North Africa. This project will demonstrate how disinformation campaigns affect public interest, political stability, economic growth, and human rights of marginalized communities. Meetings, activities, and site visits will highlight investigative journalism, fact-checking, and campaigns to counter misleading information. Participants will assess strategies designed to encourage greater public awareness of disinformation and will explore the role of government agencies, NGOs, academia, and traditional and social media in the fight against the proliferation of deceptive news and disinformation.

Countries visiting: Algeria, Israel, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates
