Decoding Digital Media
DDMAC (Decoding Digital Media in African regions of Conflict) is an interdisciplinary research project that started in 2022. The project consists of researchers affiliated with research institutions in Norway, the Netherlands, Mali and Ethiopia. Together they collect data on the role of digital communication in the development and mediation of conflicts. The researchers particularly focus on information disorder and how disinformation and hate speech flow in digital networks.
As a partner in the project, Voice4Thought conducts research in Mali under the guidance of Modibo Cissé (V4T Académie Mali).
