The Internet is used increasingly by extremists of all types to radicalize, recruit, and train followers in disseminating their messages of hate. In a roundtable discussion, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) and Concordia brought together Ambassador John D. Negroponte and over 40 of the brightest thinkers around this theme. The event provided a space for a multi-stakeholder dialogue on the spread of extremism via social networks. Google also presented “Networks Against Violent Extremism,” a video series on combating the spread of extremist ideologies among youth. The success and outcomes from this conversation will work towards Concordia’s mission of promoting public-private collaboration.
