The Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRLab) has operationalized the study of disinformation by exposing falsehoods and fake news, documenting human rights abuses, and building digital resilience worldwide.
Building Digital Resilience
We continually track global disinformation campaigns, fake news stories, covert military developments, and subversive attempts against democracy while teaching the public skills to identify and expose attempts to pollute the information space.
Digital Engagement Space
Using open source, social media, and digital forensic research DFRLab's Digital Sherlocks have conducted ground breaking investigations into war crimes committed during the siege of Aleppo and ceasefire violations in Ukraine.
