  • Researchers or civil society representatives who would like to learn more about the trends in terrorist and violent extremist use of the internet in 2023, how governments are proposing to tackle it, and what the implications might be for digital rights.

In this final webinar of the 2023 Tech Against Terrorism & GIFCT e-Learning series, we will take an in-depth look into the trends of the online terrorism and counterterrorism landscape over 2023.

We will discuss the trends, tactics, techniques, and procedures used by online terrorist and violent extremist actors and how these strategies have evolved over the past year. Together with a panel of experts, we will discuss how counterterrorism legislation and online regulation have developed in response to the problem. We will also gain insight into how the tech sector is responding to the evolving threat of online terrorist and violent extremist actors. We will discuss the various challenges of responding to fast and relentless changes in the threat landscape in a manner which does not infringe the fundamental rights of users.

This webinar session will finish with a Q&A session which is open to all attendees.
