Within the disinformation and memory studies direction, the Institute for Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI) team is developing tools in several ways. Firstly, IDFI research historical roots and disinformation narratives that are weaponized in contemporary times. Secondly, IDFI develops academic courses that are offered to the students in schools of media and social sciences, and to representatives of CSOs and civil servants. IDFI have developed short-term seminars that focus on developing practical skills for countering disinformation in society. Aside from large-and medium-scale research, IDFI also produce shorter, reader-friendly blog posts and articles that are directed to the relevant socio-political issues and dangers of disinformation.
