The reach of content published online is amplified through social media platforms at a speed never seen before. This has promoted democratic values by empowering individuals to express themselves freely, and has enhanced economic, social, political, and cultural participation. Amidst these positives, however, there are increasing risks associated with the proliferation of hate across these platforms, including terrorism and violent extremism, which has affected the way people feel safe and secure both online and offline. 

This main session will focus on different responsibilities, responses, rights and risks involved in policy approaches to dealing with terrorist and violent extremist content (TVEC) online.  It will consider regulatory and non-regulatory approaches by social media platforms, as well as how such platforms address violent extremist content uploaded to their services by end users.

The session will have contributions from:
  • Gert Billen. State Secretary. Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection, Government of the Federal Republic of Germany. Germany.
  • Dr. Sharri Clark. Senior Advisor for Cyber and Countering Violent Extremism, U.S. Department of State. United States.
