Digitalizácia a konšpiračné teórie

|Annotation:||Digital communication technologies enable the exchange, adaptation and adoption of conspiracy theories at an unprecedented speed and scale, facilitating the creation of counter-publics connected by a propensity for mis- and disinformation. The REDACT project will analyse how digitalisation shapes the form, content and consequences of conspiracy theories, including online sociality and offline actions and effects.
Rather than see digitalisation as a process that has universal outcomes, or conspiracy theories as the same over space and time, REDACT considers online conspiracy theories and counter-publics in different European regions (Western Europe, Central Europe, the Baltics and the Balkans) in order to make robust and nuanced recommendations about conspiracy theories – a particularly durable form of mis- and disinformation – for policy makers, media regulators, fact-checking and extremism-monitoring organisations, as well as the internet companies themselves.|

|Annotation:||The COST Action: Social Sciences and Humanities for Transformation and Climate Resilience (SHiFT) project is designed to take advantage of networking and collaboration opportunities between partner institutions. It is an ideal avenue to strengthen existing SSH expertise and transdisciplinary experience of stakeholders and to actively create new and innovative alliances and research pathways in the short and long term. This trajectory is closely aligned with COST's mission and policy of 'bridging the gap', which remains an obstacle to knowledge integration between science, policy-making and society.
The project aims to create a transdisciplinary hub to address existing challenges in supporting early societal transformation in the context of climate change. The SHiFT HUB - Centre will consist of a group of transdisciplinary SSH researchers and practitioners and their other networks of social contacts, with a focus on developing shared benefits for transformation across different social, political, economic, environmental and technological contexts. The SHiFT project aims to address the challenge of creating innovative and feasible pathways through engaging with the transformative dimension of 'critical practice'. The 'critical practice' approach explores transformative processes in practice across a range of dimensions that include research, policy, business, community and individual practice.|
