Research Team

Each member of the research group explores the phenomenon of conspiracy theories from the perspective of their specialisation, but they share their findings together with the aim of mapping the complexity of the conspiracy theory issue. The composition of the group is not closed and it is ready to accept other experts into its ranks as the need for developing research arises.
