Managing societal threats in the digital age: the case of propaganda and violent extremism

This project aims to bridge an important theoretical gap in the literature regarding the disruptive effect that the weaponisation of digital technologies increasingly exerts on Western societies.

By engaging with the theoretical debates surrounding counter-propaganda and countering violent extremism in the digital sphere through a carefully selected set of analytically insightful and empirically rich case studies, the research seeks to articulate reliable policy-oriented recommendations about how these threats could be better anticipated, managed and defused.
