Social Media and Injustice series are part of the research project "Compact: Social Media and Convergence". This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 762128.

The objective of Compact project is to increase awareness of the latest technological discoveries among key stakeholders in the context of social media and convergence, to provide knowledge support and stimulate an appropriate debate among the various stakeholders (the public, the researchers, scientific and other policy makers and regulators) on the desirable future policies and frameworks that are required concerning media and content convergence.

Additionally, the project seeks to provide research on and experience-exchange of policy and regulation strategies. The aim is to support the R&D digital programs by spreading the innovative ideas and also the innovated outcomes in convergence. 

Social Media and Injustice series present a critical reflection of our research through the use of visual language in a form of animated comic strips. Working in collaboration with the LSFM at the University of Lincoln Mediaframe  brings its contribution to the debate around many of the issues  related to the use of social media including safety and security, privacy, data protection, defamation and libel, hate speech, gender, human rights, intellectual property rights and censorship.
