Overview Edit

The United Nations Working Group on Countering the Use of the Internet for Terrorist Purposes aims to identify and bring together stakeholders and partners on the issue of abuse of the Internet for terrorist purposes, including through radicalization, recruitment, training, operational planning, fundraising and other means. In conjunction with Member States, the Working Group aims to explore ways in which terrorists use the Internet, quantify the threat that this poses and examine options for addressing it at national, regional and global levels, including what role the United Nations might play, without compromising human rights, fundamental values and the open nature of the Internet itself.

The Working Group has identified three key themes for discussion: legal issues, technical issues and ways in which the international community might use the Internet more effectively to counter terrorism by exposing the fallacy of the terrorist message that violence is a legitimate way to effect political change.[1]
