Global leadership in tackling online radicalisation
Show Notes
With the self-regulatory approach of platforms proving ineffective in the fight against extremist content, the European Commission proposed a regulation in 2018 to remove terrorist content online. In this episode we hear from Sir Julian King, the former EU Security Commissioner, who provides us with the competing interests and different perspectives to content moderation from Big Tech, digital rights advocates and NGOs in Europe, and sets out how the EU can keep global companies in check and our citizens safe.
