Hoaxmap is a fact-checking campaign that debunks disinformation in Germany, with a focus on exposing fake news that targets immigrants and/or minority communities. The dissemination of disinformation, especially of that which is intended to spur suspicion and “othering” of migrant- and ethnic-minority communities, can have radicalising effects and fuel hate crime and hate speech. Hoaxmap disrupts the effects of disinformation by fact-checking stories about immigrant communities in Germany. Through raising awareness of fake news and disinformation, Hoaxmap encourages users to do the same and to think critically of what they read online.
