Analysing international policy processes and Lithuania’s role in them

Disinformation Research Programme

One of the main foundations of disinformation is people’s ignorance, their inability to recognise partial or selective truths and lies. Behind them, however, there are often strategies aimed at manipulating public opinion, destroying the stability of states and their institutions, thus posing a global threat to freedom and democracy. The Disinformation Research Programme aims to expose untruths and focus on preventing disinformation. The development of critical thinking, the ability to evaluate events impartially, and emotional literacy skills is the most direct way to avoid succumbing to the hostile forces that seek to divert our attention from what is important to what is not. So please read the latest publications by our analysts.
