PSSI monitored the Czech online debate about the European Green Deal, climate change, and energy-related issues from June to December 2022. Besides mapping the general online debate and related disinformation, part of our goal was also to explore how relevant stakeholders engage in strategic communication on the topic and possibly counter any circulating manipulative discourse. The monitoring was part of a larger initiative of the International Republican Institute’s (IRI) Beacon Project, European Green Deal: Mapping perceptions in Central and Eastern Europe, which took place in five EU countries simultaneously.

Prague Security Studies Institute (PSSI) se v rámci projektu „České volby v éře dezinformací: Prezidentské volby 2023“ podíval na veřejnou debatu v online prostoru o prezidentských volbách a kandidátech mezi prvním kolem voleb, které se konalo 13. a 14. ledna, a druhým kolem voleb, které proběhlo 27. a 28. ledna. Zaměřili jsme se konkrétně na to, jak bylo v předvolební kampani a v následné veřejné diskusi v online prostoru využito a manipulováno téma války na Ukrajině.
