EDMO Online Training: “From single false news to narratives’ analysis and prebunking”

Wednesday, 18 October 2023, 15:00-16.30 CEST

EDMO is pleased to offer this online training module on “From single false news to narratives’ analysis and prebunking”.

During this training we will see the definition of “disinformation narratives” used by the EDMO fact-checking network and, in concrete, how to analyze ongoing disinformation in order to identify the main narratives. Then, we will discuss the issue of the possible overlap between disinformation narratives and legitimate opinions, and how to address this eventuality in our work. Finally, we will talk about prebunking, intended not as a generic activity of media literacy but as the possibility to predict – with a good degree of approximation – the likely evolutions of disinformation in the near future, analyzing existing disinformation narratives and techniques, and monitoring the information sphere.

Target Audience

The training is open to stakeholders working to tackle disinformation including fact-checkers, journalists, and researchers.
