While we are still learning what triggers radicalization to violence, exposure to extremist materials and propaganda no doubt plays a role in the process. And as extremist groups become more tech-savvy, the increasing use of the Internet and social media to distribute this material is alarming. Social media in particular has provided an unprecedented platform for extremist views, allowing anyone to instantly broadcast their ideas to a global audience.

What are the challenges posed by social media when it comes to extremism? Why is extremism so difficult to counter online? And why should Canadians be concerned about this?

Join Dr. Satyamoorthy Kabilan as he shares his insights on this ever-important subject. Dr. Kabilan will cover the key challenges posed by extremist messages on social media, as well as offer some approaches to challenge these ideas and provide an alternative narrative to that of the extremists.

Webinar Highlights

During this 60-minute webinar, you will learn about:

  • Why it is important, particularly for Canadians, that we understand the threat and deal with the challenges of extremist messaging on social media;
  • The key challenges for law enforcement today in dealing with extremist messaging on social media;
  • The current research and those emerging approaches that show potential to effectively deal with this important issue.
