Call for Extended Abstracts: VOX-Pol Workshop on Critiquing the Discourse of Violent Online Radicalisation

On 8-9 March 2016, the VOX-Pol Network of Excellence will convene a workshop at the Institute for Peace Research and Security Policy at the University of Hamburg (IFSH) on critiquing the discourse of violent online radicalisation. The objective of this workshop is to gain an insight into the main debates, issues, achievements and gaps into violent online political extremism and online radicalisation, but also encourage constructive dialogue on the challenges or difficulties in understanding and countering these, including ethical and political considerations.


The workshop itself will be a participatory gathering with short presentations followed by discussion and debate moderated by experts in the field from academia and beyond.


If you wish to participate, please submit an extended abstract of 300 – 500 words to workshop@remove-this.voxpol.eu. The workshop will feature invited participants from civil society, industry, policy making and academia in addition to this open call.
