The Cyber Affairs Branch is partnering with the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) on an initiative focused on countering online disinformation and hate speech relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.

IFES will work with partner countries in Southeast Asia to strengthen counter-messaging campaigns; raise awareness of states’ human rights obligations online; and promote regional and international cooperation on internet governance. The Cyber Cooperation Program is also partnering with IFES in Indonesia.
