“CIR is a non-profit social enterprise focused on countering disinformation, documenting human rights abuses and combating online harms against women and minorities,” a press release states. “It conducts research that identifies malign influence operations on social media and traditional platforms, works with international and local media to expose disinformation, and assists governments and civil social groups to design and implement countermeasures.”
Jankowicz, who signed on with CIR in September, has worked on Russian disinformation as it relates to the Ukraine war and prior to the midterm elections, and represents the nonprofit in media outlets and on social platforms.
