PSSI Contributed to a New Report: “The Mythbusters – Guide to Critical Thinking”


PSSI is pleased to announce that we contributed to “The Mythbusters – Guide to Critical Thinking". The chief aim of the publication is to provide practical examples and offer useful recommendations on how to recognize manipulation in the digital age. It comes at a time when critical thinking has become not only a popular buzzword but also an indispensable skill in everyday life. 

Together with partners from the Centre for International Relations (the main coordinator, Poland), the Centre For Euro-Atlantic Integration and Democracy (Hungary), and (Ukraine), PSSI engaged in research efforts to produce a guide, which seeks to make readers more vigilant about information found on the Internet through a series of questions and specific case-studies from four countries. Videos from a workshop presenting the main findings of the Guide are available on PSSI’s Youtube channel.  

This report was created within the framework of the project “Mythbusters”, supported by the International Visegrad Fund.
