IRI has established the Beacon Project to address state-sponsored influence operations, particularly those emanating from Russia. The project identifies and exposes false or misleading information and helps facilitate a response with its local partners. The organization has also developed a media monitoring tool called >versus< that it shares with local media partners in Central and Eastern Europe. The Beacon Project is part of the Center for European Policy Analysis's #DisinfoNet.
