IRI’s Beacon Project employs a multi-method research approach to examine the media environment in Central and Eastern Europe, Baltic, and Western Balkans in order to determine the penetration and impact of specific narratives used in disinformation campaigns in Europe. The project aims to analyze the political and social drivers of disinformation, assess the state of the media landscape in targeted countries, and inform stakeholders on possible responses.
This request for proposals targets individuals and organizations interested to become our core online media monitors to provide reports on media coverage around notable news events using various media monitoring tools (e.g. Pulsar, CrowdTangle, etc.). This research will focus on the overall quality of information available to the public, the main narratives in target countries, and the quality and diversity of sources.
Submission deadline: March 4, 2022
