Written by Rafael Schmuziger Goldzweig, Iskra Kirova, Bruno Lupion, Michael Meyer-Resende, and Susan Morgan 11 June 2019

"This scoping report explains why social media is one of the elements of a democratic, rule of law–based state that observer groups should monitor. It aggregates experience from diverse civil society and nongovernmental initiatives that are innovating in this field, and sets out questions to guide the development of new mandates for election observers" (Schmuziger Goldzweig et. al., 2019).
