A strong information ecosystem is vital for a thriving democracy. The spread of online disinformation, misinformation, and dangerous speech (DMDS) polarizes and disenfranchises citizens, while insufficient transparency hinders efforts to hold political contestants and others accountable. IFES’ information integrity programming supports efforts to curtail and counteract the spread of DMDS, strengthens the communications capabilities of election authorities, and civil society organizations, and promotes greater transparency regarding the online activity of political actors.
