Preventing and Countering the Use of the Internet for Terrorist Purposes

The notion of preventing and countering the use of the Internet for terrorist purposes refers to a significant challenge for democratic societies in recent years. In order to prevent and counter use of the Internet and new technologies for terrorist purposes, we need to become familiar with their target audiences, what platforms they use and how online platforms are instrumentalized to further their ends. This will lay the groundwork for a better understanding of how to effectively respond to these challenges.
