Recent elections and events have exposed the risks of disinformation and manipulation of the democratic discourse on social media. However, there is still too little evidence that demonstrates how disinformation, hate speech, bots and others influence the online debate.

Meanwhile, the tools to monitor social media are oftentimes not easily accessible for civil society and other interested groups. To fill this gap, DRI has developed a Digital Democracy Monitor Toolkit, which makes all the necessary resources available in one place.

The Digital Democracy Monitor toolkit is designed for civil society, journalists, researchers and anyone trying to learn more about social media and democracy.
