The Department of Public Policy Analysis at FGV is a center for applied social research which aims to understand public policies and their effects, qualifying the public debate in the network society. DAPP's mission is to improve transparency and dialogue between the State and society, promoting national development. 

FGV DAPP was created in 2012 and has established itself as a benchmark in the Brazilian scenario for research and analysis based on the use of social networks, open data and interdisciplinary knowledge. The study “Bots, Social Networks and Politics in Brazil”, which produced a diagnosis of bot presence in key moments of Brazilian politics since 2014, generated wide repercussion and became a benchmark in the debate on disinformation in the Brazilian context.
