MISINFORMATION IN DEMOCRATIC PROCESSES

Misinformation is a global challenge that threatens democracy, especially during electoral processes. This was evident during the Australian referendum (2023), the Kenyan presidential election (2022) and the US election (2020) with misinformation and disinformation spreading online.

Misinformation in electoral processes can lead to an erosion of trust in the political process and may sway citizens to distrust official dialogue and trust unreliable sources. While political discourse is a well-recognized part of the democratic process, it is evident that external parties, malign actors, and foreign adversaries may use discourse to influence the narratives surrounding electoral processes.

Request the case study to understand how Fivecast was able to leverage open-source intelligence to identify and analyze online narratives and potential misinformation in the 2023 Australian referendum.
