Agence France-Presse (AFP), with the support of the Google News Initiative, is offering a self-directed course designed to address the growing challenges posed by misinformation surrounding elections worldwide.

This new training, available in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese, is part of the digital investigation techniques course launched by AFP in June 2022.
