The Christchurch Call Community has identified four priority areas for action towards its goal of eliminating terrorist and violent extremist content online. In the Call work plan, each area has a work stream with actions to progress the Call commitments. There is also a set of cross-cutting issues and themes that are collected into a fifth work stream.
We are improving our understanding of user journeys and the role of algorithms in online radicalisation, and how positive interventions can keep users safe. This includes a ground-breaking initiative to enable secure, independent research into algorithms.
When incidents happen, the Call Community works quickly to coordinate and prevent the spread of terrorist and violent extremist content online in real time. We are continuing to build capability, and to test and refine how we respond.
We are supporting greater transparency from Government and Online Service Provider supporters about the processes they follow and decisions they make about content. This includes encouraging supporters to report on content flagging and removal.
Some issues are relevant across all priority areas and inform our work as we deliver on Call commitments. These include responding to new and emerging technology, understanding the links between violent extremism and gender-based hate online, and better engaging young people in the Call’s work.
