With the aim of increasing the knowledge of influence operations and subversive actions by authoritarian regimes, the Stockholm Free World Forum has established the Center for Influence and Disinformation Analysis, CIDA.
CIDA will shed light on disinformation campaigns and other other influence operations targeting civil society, think tanks, business, the defence sector, media etc. The purpose of CIDA is to increase the resilience of free and democratic societies.
