"Project 4β" Partners With Civic Resilience Initiative

Gabija Birgile

2024-02-052 min read


In these turbulent times, organizations combating disinformation are the frontline defenders of truth, democracy, and public well-being. By countering false narratives, unfolding the most prevalent propaganda narratives and organizing media literacy campaigns, these organizations play a vital role in fostering a more informed society. 

We are delighted to announce a new partnership with Civic Resilience Initiative (CRI), a Lithuanian non-profit, non governmental organization founded in 2018 by a group of experts based all around Europe. 

About CRI

CRI focuses its activities on increasing the resilience of Lithuanian and other societies of the region through the means of engaging education. This organization aims to increase the resilience in the spheres of security, media-literacy, disinformation, cyber, civil and grass-root activities, empowering the civil societies to actively engage in educational activities themselves.

CRI brings together experts excelling in a variety of resilience topics, providing insights into the educational process of various age groups, where official governmental institutions are unable to fill the gaps. CRI excels in organizing off-site workshops, conferences and trainings with the best experts in their fields. 

The Initiative identifies educational gaps and provides innovative solutions delivering the best results in long term promotion of democratic processes. Its long-standing cooperation partners include NATO Public Diplomacy Division, Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, Wilfried Martens Center for European Studies, Lithuanian Elves, Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Lithuanian Ministry of Defense and others. CRI focuses its activities on increasing the resilience of Lithuanian and other societies of the region through the means of engaging education.

Web scraping for disinformation research

Through "4β," Civic Resilience Initiative receives free access to Oxylabs' ready-to-use web scraping solutions, empowering the organization and its team to advance fact-checking processes by automating publicly available data collection and gaining valuable insights for their research endeavors. 

Advanced disinformation monitoring is inseparable from tools that enable the efficient and rapid collection of necessary data. Only with their help can we cover a wide range of sources, including both public social media and news portal channels. Without the Oxylabs data collection tools provided by the "4beta" program, our disinformation research activities in the Baltic countries would not be as comprehensive, and the work of our researchers could not proceed as quickly and smoothly.
