Vulnerability to disinformation of diverse groups of citizens in North Macedonia

The research “Vulnerability to disinformation of diverse groups of citizens in North Macedonia” aims to determine the individual factors, motives, and barriers for recognizing and dealing with disinformation of vulnerable groups of citizens (young people between 18 and 28 years old, people over 60 years old, and recipients of social assistance), as well as to determine the connection of media literacy with the ability to recognize disinformation in online news. ICS produced the research within the project “Use Facts” with the support of the British Embassy in Skopje.
