[Multi tweet thread]

The think-tank 'Institute for Strategic Dialogue' (ISD) was established in 2008 to combat extremism by targetting online 'disinformation' & promoting local projects (including seminars for policy makers & workshops for youth groups).

It was founded by Jonathan Kropman & Martin Paisner, & it's first director was well known philanthropist & Zionist Lord Weidenfeld.

ISD has several programmes including Strong Cities Network (SCN) which is a policy advice programme founded at the United Nations in 2015 with funding from the US State Dept. It aims to combat far-right extremism & Islamic extremism.

Currently the SCN has presence in more than 120 cities around the globe, including several in the UK (Birmingham, Derry, Leicester, London, Luton and Manchester).

ISD is well connected. It recieves funding from multinationals like Google, collaborates with NGOs like ADL, & works with local govts like the London Mayor's Office.

While it may not be large compared to other well more known Think Tanks (it's budget for 2018 was ~£5 mil) it does seem to be growing & might be worth being aware of as it targets so-called online disinformation, including 'Covid Denial'.
