Symposium on Preventing and Countering Terrorists’ Use of the Internet
21 October 2016
Key themes of the discussion included:
- The threat posed by terrorism has no boundaries. Therefore, States cannot address the threat of TUI alone. States should continue to advance international cooperation to prevent and counter TUI through the exchange of good practices and policies.
Governments, civil society and private sector actors have a shared interest in preserving an open and secure Internet, and a shared responsibility to prevent and counter TUI.
Measures need to be part of a comprehensive and integrated approach to address vulnerability to radicalization, including alternative content and counter narratives.
