RESEARCH: THE EFFECT OF DISINFORMATION AND FOREIGN INFLUENCES ON THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESSES IN NORTH MACEDONIA

Knowledge from research and journalism is the basis for an advocacy initiative that brings together relevant stakeholders (government institutions, media associations, individual media, civil society organizations, the scientific and educational community, and the private sector) to counter the toxic effects of disinformation by creating an effective model with the inclusion of all stakeholders. Empirical data from the research enable the advocacy initiative to encourage the appropriate change of public policies and concrete activities to reduce the harmful effects of hostile foreign influences.
