The Global Disinformation Index (GDI) is a nonprofit organisation that operates on the three principles of neutrality, independence and transparency. Our vision is a world free of disinformation and its harms, which undermine the trusted information ecosystems that are the foundation of democratic processes. GDI provides disinformation risk ratings of the world’s news and information sources, with a mission to catalyse industry and government to defund disinformation.
In each media market, the new domains included in GDI’s studies are reviewed by local experts working in civil society or academia. GDI provides local researchers with training and tools to collect data on each news domain according to its methodology. The local team then drafts a report summarising the results of the study and hosts the launch of the publication in order to present the findings to key journalism, policy and civil society stakeholders.
We are currently seeking in-country partners to collaborate with us on our Media Market Risk Assessment projects. Projects to-date have covered over 20 countries, and are planned to expand to another 20 over the course of 2023 and 2024.
Expressions of interest will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
