During the 2018 Brazilian presidential elections, FGV DAPP coordinated the Digital Democracy Room to monitor public debate and potential threats to its integrity. Through this initiative, FGV DAPP provided research and analysis on issues related to misinformation online, bot networks, and foreign influence in public discourse and worked with the Consultative Council on Internet and Elections of the Brazilian Superior Electoral Court. FGV has also joined the Atlantic Council’s #ElectionWatch project, which monitored foreign influence in Brazilian, Colombian, and Mexican elections in 2018.
