To empower a new generation of democracy champions to defend democratic values and increase the resiliency of democratic institutions, the institute will mobilize Mongolian youth as defenders of democracy and protect the integrity of Mongolia’s free and open information space from disinformation. The institute will collaborate with local partners to develop programs that inspire and empower youth to engage in the civic space. It will also work with a media and civil society consortium to mitigate disinformation through risk media monitoring.
