STATE OF PLAY

The beginning of the 21st century marked the shift in definition of the power from conventional, military and hard power to its much more non-violent and non-conventional form, in a way that mass media, social media and information have become weapons of choice. Many countries, Western Balkans states included, face the same challenge of responding and resisting to the disinformation campaigns aimed against them.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to identify, explain and counter the problem of disinformation and fake news narratives through open source research; to promote truth and critical thinking; reduce problem of digital/media illiteracy through events, workshops and lectures that will raise awareness of this issue. People have the right to always ask for the proof. Their mindset should be to always question!

UNDERSTANDING DISINFO

The problem of disinformation is broader than any individual country or actor spreading malign narratives. That is why we, within Digital Forensic Center, want to place the foundation for digital hub that will fight new media and digital disinformation through the multi-sector and multi-disciplinary approach. These campaigns are synchronized and systematic, so the response must be as well.
