The Information Integrity Map showcases organizations around the world that are dedicated to building a healthier information space. The map includes 531 organizations working in 113 countries across four broad categories of activity: fact-checking and verification; media literacy and training; research and monitoring; and policy and standards. Below the map is a database highlighting these organizations and their resources.

The Information Integrity Map and the associated database were developed by the Alliance for Securing Democracy at the German Marshall Fund (ASD at GMF) for the Summit for Democracy’s Information Integrity cohort, which is co-led by the Government of Canada and the Government of Latvia. This work was made possible by the generous support of the Government of Canada.

The Information Integrity Map divides organizations into four categories: fact-checking and verification, media literacy and training, research and monitoring, and policy and standards. Many organizations fall into multiple categories. The resource database contains guides, trainings, and other tools developed by these organizations.

ASD at GMF collected this data through open-source research, including by consulting existing lists of counter-disinformation organizations, such as the ones developed by the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening, Rand, and Duke University. The collection of organizations and resources on this page is not meant to be exhaustive. ASD at GMF will continue to refine and add data—to report any errors or omissions, please contact 

Fact checking organizations seek to counter misinformation and disinformation by identifying, evaluating, and correcting or contextualizing details reported by news outlets or posted on social media. Similar organizations provide verification tools to establish the authenticity of media.

Media literacy and training organizations aim to increase a society’s resilience to misinformation and disinformation through education and exercises designed to empower individuals to spot misleading and inaccurate content.

Research and monitoring organizations aim to combat misinformation and disinformation by shining a light on the tools and tactics used to spread misleading or fake narratives

Policy and standards organizations promote regulations and normative frameworks meant to restrict the creation, propagation, and reach of misinformation and disinformation. These initiatives could be aimed at government policymakers, social media platforms, or individuals.
