About us

Aotearoa New Zealand is experiencing a crisis of disinformation. Research shows that the Covid-19 pandemic has furthered the spread of existing disinformation networks, impacting social cohesion and creating a risk to New Zealand’s democracy and electoral integrity.

Founded in February 2020, we are an independent research group that provides advice and monitoring across sectors. We work with corporate brands, journalists, academics, policymakers and community organisations to understand and meaningfully respond to information disorders and their growing offline consequences.

We also produce publicly available research, media commentary and provide support for civil society seeking to respond to information disorders.
