The Great Global Disinformation Feed

Written by GDIL

September 12, 2022

The Global Disinformation Policy Database team shares recommendations for understanding global disinformation.

Perhaps the only thing that travels faster than a lie is a lie promoted on the internet. Disinformation evolves and adjusts rapidly for even the smallest of targeted social groups. With over 190 countries in the world – and each country hosting numerous social groups at risk of disinformation targeting – how can we even begin to study such a massive topic? A graduate team at the University of Texas at Austin’s LBJ School of Public Affairs has taken the initiative to aggregate sources of news about disinformation from all global regions to create a diverse feed of chosen experts and emerging topics. The team hopes the news feed will be a valuable tool for both novices and experts to stay up to date on the latest narratives and trends.
