Demagog Association is the first Polish fact-checking organization. Since 2014 Demagog activities focus on verifying politicians' statements, false information with the aim of reducing the spread of fake news in social media.
Our main goal is to improve the quality of public debate by providing citizens with unbiased and reliable information.
As of May 2019, the association is a member of the International Fact-Checking Network and also a part of Facebook’s Third-Party Fact-Checking Program.
Within the framework of the fight against fake news, Demagog conducts workshops and educational projects for youth, students and seniors. The “Fact-Checking Academy” is one of the main projects, where the association conducts training on fighting with disinformation.
Apart from education and fact-checking we focus on civic activism, public information access issues, cooperation with research centers, projects and other organizations in the field of disinformation, data analysis and processing. We fight disinformation, prepare reports and analysis on key topics related to fake news - vaccinations, 5G technology, public affairs. We also cooperate with international organizations in this area.
In 2021 Demagog was awarded with the Polish-American Freedom Foundation's Sektor 3.0 prize for innovation in socially useful activities.
