Decoding Digital Media in African regions of Conflict

An interdisciplinary research project in sub-Saharan Africa

DDMAC is a transnational, transdisciplinary study sitting at the intersection of digital communication, democracy and conflict.

We seek to uncover the role of social media in reducing or worsening conflict. The principle countries of focus for this Norwegian Research Council-funded project are Mali and Ethiopia. We are primary interested in using qualitative and quantitative methods to investigate the impact of disinformation in African regions of conflict.
