Event: The Digital Influence Industry in Brazilian Election Campaigns

Brazil's elections, and therefore, democracy are shaped by digital influence techniques, technology firms, and social media platforms. The nature of these digital influence techniques has changed over time, bringing evolving problems for society including misinformation and divisive messaging.

In advance of the 2024 municipal elections, we will present and create space to discuss trends in digital influence tactics being used in Brazil, accountability for tech firms, platforms, and political groups in the context of Brazil, and the motivations of citizens using these tools.

Join us online on the 10th July, 10am - 11.30am BRT. Sign up here.
