Information Disorder Analysis Centre (IDAC)

The Information Disorder Analysis Centre (IDAC) is an initiative targeted specifically at unravelling the complexities and methodologies of disinformation and public information consumption patterns, preferences and behaviours while bridging the gap in research around information disorder on the African continent. The goal of this effort is to proactively engage with and unearth disinformation campaigns and efforts to weaponize false information. The IDAC project is research-driven and also builds knowledge around fact-checking efforts around the world, starting with the West African Corridor, creating knowledge on the information disorder ecosystem through extensive research, following identification of gaps in knowledge that would drive policy and democratic discourse around technological consequences, social media, and political legislation.
