The report was authored by the EEAS Strategic Communications and Information Analysis Division, which contributes to the EU’s efforts to counter disinformation, including through the detection, analysis and exposure of disinformation campaigns.

The EEAS is working closely with the European Commission, European Parliament services and EU Member States to address disinformation and identify and analyze disinformation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also cooperating with international partners and civil society.

The results are regularly published on the website and social media channels. Insights are shared with EU institutions and EU Member States in real-time, including through the Rapid Alert System on Disinformation.
