Disarming Disinformation: Research

The Disarming Disinformation program will produce action-oriented research that identifies effective editorial techniques to combat mis/disinformation and investigate disinformation actors.

Led by ICFJ’s Global Director of Research Dr. Julie Posetti, the project will invite faculty members from Arizona State University and the University of Maryland to contribute to action-oriented research.

The research project aims to map and model innovative editorial responses to disinformation in the service of democracy. The purpose of this project will be to identify, describe, analyze and assess the impact of innovative, journalistic counter-disinformation projects.

The research will take place in five countries: Brazil, Hungary, India, the Philippines, South Africa and the U.S. Through our research, we will surface new, practical recommendations for journalists, newsroom managers, media funders and other professionals in the journalism field.
