CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Behördenmitarbeiter für Onlineradikalisierungs-Workshop im Dezember in Berlin gesucht

“We would like to invite applications for counter-terrorism practitioners to attend an upcoming workshop in Berlin on the topic of online violent political extremism. (…) This workshop will outline preliminary results based on a data collection effort of convicted Al-Qaeda related offender. It investigates whether those who interact virtually with like-minded activists or who learn online display markedly different experiences (e.g. radicalization, event preparation and attack outcomes) than those who do not. The key findings from the statistical analysis will be presented alongside illustrative examples from first-hand interviews. Finally, the workshop examines how some of these actors have used the Internet to overcome the difficulties inherent in committing a terrorist offence absent the logistical support network and expertise of a terrorist organisation. The aim of the workshop is to (a) present these preliminary findings to a practitioner community and (b) obtain feedback from practitioners regarding where future research on this topic could provide utility for their day-to-day decision-making and understanding.”
