NEXUS MK is a report on the research conducted within the project of the same name supported by the International Republican Institute.
The purpose of the research was to answer two main questions: 1) What attitudes do the citizens of North Macedonia have regarding the various foreign relations? and 2) What type of disinformation material are they most susceptible to?
The interaction of these two factors was key to determining the research approach. The attitudes of other countries are important indicators of the future foreign policy positions of North Macedonia, when they are analyzed together with the weaknesses in the spread of disinformation, we can precisely indicate the areas in which the population of North Macedonia is most vulnerable. Moreover, countries that enjoy a higher rating are likely to be more successful in disseminating disinformation. This follows from the fact that a positive view of a country usually comes with greater media consumption and cultural exchange. As our findings in the report show, shared values and interests are very important to our citizens.
