Daesh uses social media to spread terror and brainwash vulnerable people. Daesh propaganda still poses a threat, despite its shrinking territorial presence. Italy is a member of the Communication Working Group and contributes to the Strategic Communications Cell whose mission is countering Daesh’s propaganda and fighting their flawed narrative and heinous ideology.
Italy is engaged in making the internet a safe place and strengthening community resilience against radicalization. We engage digital platforms and media outlets to prevent them from becoming Daesh’s repositories and echo-chambers, enhance early detection of extremist content and speed up the removal process.
