No person or entity is beyond the reach of corruption and disinformation. Countering corruption and stopping disinformation levels the playing field and promotes transparent and fair business practices and good governance. This ensures that all people, especially members of marginalized communities, have access to the information needed as well as the necessary tools to identify and stop corruption and disinformation in its tracks, develop transparent business practices, and pursue civic engagement opportunities.
When global communities work together to promote transparency and protect the quality of and access to information disseminated, we protect climate resiliency, support inclusive democracies, create gainful employment prospects, and promote equity! If you are committed to being pro-democracy and anti-corruption, get started by sharing your experience and completing the Advancing Democracy Survey today!

A seriously fun game about fake news. The goal of Harmony Square is to expose tactics and manipulation techniques that are used to mislead people, build up a following, or exploit societal tensions for political purposes. Harmony Square works as a psychological “vaccine” against disinformation: playing it builds cognitive resistance against common forms of manipulation that you may encounter online.
Individuals across the region have taken the pledge to be pro-democracy and anti-corruption. Read more about how YLAI Network members like you are countering disinformation, advancing inclusive civic engagement, and countering corruption with transparent business practices.
