This policy Brief addresses the impact of the Ukrainian crisis on social cohesion and misinformation, and its consequences for vulnerable groups and key supporters. It highlights the increasing concern about hate speech and disinformation, exacerbated by emerging technologies, which has led to negative consequences on youth wellbeing. Despite the negative impact of the crisis on many countries, including Egypt, the war in Ukraine provides a unique model for uniting people from different cultures, races, and genders to fight for the rights of vulnerable groups. The paper aims to shed light on the key contributions of youth clubs established by international organisations in Egypt to social cohesion and fighting misinformation, and to explore possible pathways to support these youth structures.
