Research Spotlight Webinar: Dr. Josephine Lukito

Research Spotlight Webinar Josephine Lukito

IDDP research fellow Dr. Josephine Lukito will discuss her project: Understanding Social Movements as Targets of State-Sponsored Digital Disinformation

Few organizations are as directly impacted by state-sponsored disinformation as social movements, many of which have grown to rely on social media for information dissemination and advocacy. The goal of this project is to study how state governments have targeted social movements, including domestic activists and groups, to undermine and delegitimize their political endeavors.
