Combatting Terrorism Online

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the past 18 months, terrorist attacks in Paris, Copenhagen, Ankara, Beirut, San Bernardino, and other cities have led to increasing calls from governments to restrict online content deemed “extremist.” States have passed laws prohibiting incitement, glorification, or promotion of terrorism; they have sought to enter into public-private partnerships that lack transparency; and they have called for ICT companies to play a more active role in preventing the use of their technologies for terrorist purposes. But is the restriction of online content effective in preventing radicalization and stemming recruitment by groups such as ISIS? How should companies and users best respond to the expansion of Internet Referral Units and other informal arrangements in a way that respects the rights to freedom of expression and privacy? What role should governments, companies, and other stakeholders play in facilitating the dissemination of alternative narratives?

As part of its policy dialogue on the subject of extremist content online, the Global Network Initiative has convened discussions aimed at exploring key questions and fostering collaboration on the issue of extremist content online and the ICT sector in a multi-stakeholder setting. This panel will present some of the preliminary conclusions and recommendations that have emerged from these discussions.
