How to Track Disinformation Networks

2 - 6 pm

The event will be held in English.

This online workshop introduces the basics of networked disinformation and manipulation campaigns, helping participants acquire a methodology for discovering, mapping, and tracking networks of disinformation in different languages and contexts. Participants gain awareness that disinformation and manipulation campaigns are multi-dimensional and that digital investigators need to adopt a networked approach (looking for connections on multiple platforms) in order to “expose the invisible” behind disinformation campaigns.

The workshop is a cooperation with Tactical Tech and will be led by Nicola Bruno.
