The nonprofit Center for Monitoring, Analysis, and Strategy (CeMAS) consolidates years of interdisciplinary expertise on the topics of conspiracy ideologies, disinformation, antisemitism, and right-wing extremism. CeMAS addresses current developments in the above-mentioned fields through systematic monitoring of central digital platforms and modern study designs in order to derive innovative analyses and recommendations for action. Furthermore, CeMAS advises decision makers from civil society, media and politics.

CeMAS mission is to equip society to actively counter conspiracy ideologies, disinformation, antisemitism and right-wing extremism in context of current challenges and future crises. To this end, anti-democratic tendencies are detected and analyzed at an early stage. As a non-profit organization, CeMAS offers its analysis to various social actors to enable them to constructively meet the challenges facing society.

The Center for Monitoring, Analysis and Strategy defines itself as being at the interface of science, journalism and society. Recent events such as the global COVID 19 pandemic have shown the importance of integrating societal and scientific perspectives. Our monitoring and research work is a hands-on approach, combining scientific, journalistic, and civil society insights.

CeMAS uses an interdisciplinary approach combining psychological, cognitive linguistic, and social science perspectives with modern data science and investigative journalistic methods. As a result, there is a continuous exchange of insights from various perspectives, which find practical expression in the areas of monitoring, analysis, and consulting.

Our Vision:
A Better Internet is Possible — a Better World is Necessary

CeMAS conceives social process within online and offline spheres as interconnected, not as separate from each other. The increasing influence of online discourse on politics and society in the last decades demonstrated that phenomena of the digital spheres have off-line consequences, which in turn act back into the digital spheres.

CeMAS vision A Better Internet is Possible — a Better World is Necessary signifies developing strategies against conspiracy ideological, antisemitic and right-wing extremist incitement. This will enable us to actively counter these challenges at an early stage.

Early on, the Alfred Landecker Foundation recognized the relevance of CeMAS' work. Consequently, we are pleased to announce that we will be funded by the Alfred Landecker Foundation from 2021-2024.
