The prefiguration group of the International Observatory on Information and Democracy (IOID), composed of recognized personalities from the world of research and international governance, has the task of specifying the objectives, methodology and means of this Observatory.
Objectives of the IOID
Define the general and specific objectives of the Observatory so that it responds to the needs in a relevant way, including the main fields and levels of evaluation, the phenomena and their causes, the related effects and risks, and the structure of the report.
Define recommendations on how the IOID can structure exchanges between States, digital platforms and the research community.
Methodology of the IOID
Produce recommendations on IOID’s methodology, considering that it will be based on a meta-analysis of the information space, i.e., on an aggregation and synthesis of all available research and data.
Define the research areas within the scope of this meta-analysis and how it will be cross-referenced with data on democratic developments
Means of the IOID
The working group will assess the human, technical and financial needs for IOID’s activities. It will make recommendations on the skills to be integrated into the Observatory, the technical means necessary for the evaluation of the information and communication space and the analysis of data (computer infrastructure, hardware, software, secure collaborative work environment, etc.).
Members of the steering committee will be announced soon.
