Over the past four years, WatchDog.MD organization has been active in monitoring the governance process and cooperating with national and international stakeholders. The NGO also monitored the electoral process and the reform process in Moldova. With the growing disinformation efforts to manipulate citizens’ political choices in 2018 and 2019 and the rapid decline of the democratic state starting with the November 2019, WatchDog.MD focused on debunking and countering disinformation and building resilience to manipulation.

The WatchDog.MD Community implemented various projects aiming to:

  • foster public resilience against foreign and domestic disinformation; 
  • counter democratic backsliding;
  • foster public debate on key policy issues;
  • promote women in the policy sector;
