Abstract

This report draws on insights from representatives of civil society, law enforcement and industry groups to offer fresh perspectives on the policing of extremist material online. Evidently, the Internet now serves not only as a breeding ground for extremism, but also offers myriad data streams which potentially hold great value to law enforcement. Using an international legal framework as a starting point, the report explores the technical, political and ethical complexities of policing the web for extremist material, and its implications for security, privacy and human rights.
