From Al Qaeda to white supremacists, the internet plays an increasingly important role in radicalizing homegrown and domestic terrorists. BPC’s Homeland Security Project will release its latest report, Countering Online Radicalization in America, which explains how online radicalization works and what needs to be done to counter it. Based on extensive research and dozens of interviews with experts and policymakers, it sets out a balanced and practical approach, which respects American values while protecting the homeland from terrorism. The co-chairs will outline their conclusions, and a panel discussion will follow.
