CÔTE D’IVOIRE’S FAKE NEWS ECOSYSTEM: AN OVERVIEW

Fake News is increasingly becoming a dangerous weapon. Like other lethagic weapons used in causing serious afflictions, the weaponisation of falsehood –Misinformation and Disinformation, has proven a more dangerous means of creating unrest, conflict, and an outright war.

Putting this in context, the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD), as part of its regional campaign against Fake News and Misinformation and Disinformation in the West Africa Subregion, beamed its searchlight on Côte D’ivoire and its News Ecosystem.

The outcome of that research is the production of this highly illuminating Report, one of the components of OSIWA’s larger interventions on Tackling Fake News in West Africa.
