To engage U.S. private sector technology companies to help fight violent extremism online.
The CSIS Commission on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) was formed to develop a comprehensive and actionable blueprint on how to effectively combat the growing appeal of violent extremism within the United States and abroad. Specifically, the Commission considered what the next U.S. administration must do, in close collaboration with governmental and nongovernmental partners, to diminish the appeal of extremist ideologies and narratives. In our efforts to form an actionable blueprint, the Commission worked to engage the private sector to produce and deliver compelling narratives across media platforms. A key Commission strategy is to raise awareness about radicalization and recruitment of violent extremists. To do so, the Commission recommended that within the United States, CSIS and the government should work with civil society and the private sector to expand community awareness programs and organize safe spaces for parents, students, and teachers to learn about how terrorists radicalize and recruit youth, on and offline.
Social media giants Facebook, Google's YouTube, Twitter and Microsoft said on June 26, 2017 that they were forming a global working group, the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism, to combine their efforts to remove terrorist content from their platforms. The media companies announced that they would continue to work with the Center for Strategic and International Studies to work on ways to counter online extremism and hate.
