RAN is organising a cross-cutting event that will provide the opportunity to discuss and learn more about the online dynamics of violent extremism in daily practice, research, and policy, and what is needed to be even more successful and effective in preventing and countering extremism in the online sphere.
Call for participants
We are currently inviting participants to respond to this call, who:
- are practitioners, researchers or policymakers dealing with the online dimension of P/CVE
- have experience in one (or more) of the following fields:
- transferring P/CVE work from offline to online
- legal and ethical boundaries, roles and responsibilities in online P/CVE work
- monitoring and detecting extremism online and leveraging technologies to address it

Background and aims of the event
During this cross-cutting event, current issues will be discussed ranging from the online monitoring of extremist propaganda to digital approaches carried out by first-line practitioners throughout the EU. The event will further provide ample opportunity to network and exchange experiences on policy, research, and practice, discussing real life cases and examples.
The event will address the following key topics:
- Detecting early signs of radicalisation that are expressed online in posts/texts of specific groups and/or persons.
- Dealing with the legal challenges concerning digital interventions and how to act until the needed legal frameworks are in place.
- Leveraging insights about new and emerging technologies to address the issue of dissemination of extremist ideology and recruitment online.
- Challenges and limitations for practitioners and policymakers when transferring P/CVE strategies, concepts and practical approaches from the prevention landscape to the digital world.
- Golden rules to strengthening resilience and digital literacy for different age groups and strengthening civil society organisations and their efforts in online prevention.
- Ways research can inform and support practitioners’ digital P/CVE work and vice versa.
The programme will offer a unique opportunity to:
- get an overview of the latest trends and analyses on the dissemination of extremist ideologies and recruitment online;
- discuss real life cases from daily practice;
- informally exchange between policymakers, first-line practitioners and researchers active in the field.
A buffet lunch will be offered at the event. On the evening before the event (26 September), an informal networking evening will be organised to provide all participants with the opportunity to meet each other.
Please fill in the form above by Tuesday 6 September. We will invite participants based on the answers given in the survey. Please keep in mind that we can only invite a limited number of participants to this meeting to ensure valuable exchange and interaction, so participation is not guaranteed.
