WhatsApp Watch2022-2023

WhatsApp Watch is a platform for monitoring how misinformation spreads through Whatsapp groups. The project will focus on working with journalists in the Global South – in countries like India, Brazil and the Philippines where the application is very popular. Big Tech companies are notorious for lax oversight and invasive surveillance in these regions, and the harm posed by these conditions can be life-threatening. This project provides technical support and access to data to journalists to allow them to report on this important topic.
