Analysis of Multi-Platform Ecosystems of Disinformation and Radicalization through Telegram

Since 2021, LABHDUFBA has been developing this research in partnership with InternetLab . This project establishes a multi-method framework to map and analyze the multi-platform ecosystem of political extremism networks through the Telegram app. It monitors computational propaganda activities, coordinated influence operations, and hate speech (misogyny, racism, LGBTQIA+phobia) using corpus linguistics (CL), natural language processing (NLP), discourse analysis, and online ethnography.

  • Monitoring computational propaganda and influence operations
  • Analyzing hate speech: misogyny, racism, LGBTQIA+phobia
  • Combining computational and qualitative research methods
  • Understanding the socio-anthropological impact of radical content
