Welcome to the latest episode of the Into Africa podcast created in partnership with African Arguments. Into Africa is a fortnightly podcast series by the Center for Strategic & International Studies. Every third episode is put together in collaboration with African Arguments.

Disinformation operations in Africa are hidden in discretely coordinated social media campaigns. How can activists across the globe detect fake news and tackle these issues more coherently? In our 11th episode in partnership with African Arguments, Judd Devermont is joined by African Arguments contributor Elsie Eyakuze (The Mikocheni Report), Shelby Grossman (Stanford Internet Observatory), and Rose Jackson (Atlantic Council) to discuss the importance of people-to-people engagement in responding to disinformation. Guests also explore Covid-19 lockdowns in Nigeria and Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu’s deviation from her predecessor’s policies.
