A Civil Society Approach to Preventing Terrorism and Targeted Violence

On October 28 – the day after the anniversary of the Tree of Life tragedy – Parallel Networks will launch Ctrl +Alt +Del-Hate, a counter polarization, hate and far right-wing e-magazine that replicates the pilot counter-jihadi e-zine project they launched in July.

That jihadi version has since been embedded in Telegram as the first public e-narrative effort on the platform in English. Rather than utilizing it as a stand-alone piece, they use it to initiate discourse, force the hubs to communicate in groups, and deconstruct their arguments to engage in one-on-one intervention-oriented conversations.

On November 4, join New America and Parallel Networks as they discuss Parallel Networks’ new initiative, the changing threat landscape, the future of terrorism prevention practices, and the utilization of “ecosystem approaches” for interventions to best combat extremism in all forms. The panel will also discuss the relationship between far-right wing and jihadism.

Follow the conversation online using #CtrlAltDelHate and following @NewAmericaISP and @Parallel_Net.
