OxTEC: A Report on Anti-Disinformation Initiatives

22 August 2019


Oxford Technology and Elections Commission (OxTEC) has released their first report, written and researched by BBC Monitoring’s specialist Disinformation Team. The report investigates fake news landscapes around the world and analyses a range of measures adopted by governments to combat disinformation. The analysis provides geopolitical context with timely, relevant examples from 19 countries in four continents (with a particular focus on European nations).

OxTEC was formed by an alliance of stakeholders, including ComProp, to “explore how democracies can integrate democratic norms and practices into the use of information technologies, social media, and big data during campaigns, with the goal of protecting the integrity of elections.”
