The Program on Extremism at George Washington University joined the Global Network on Extremism and Technology (GNET), which formally launched in June 2020. GNET is the academic research arm of the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT) and aims to better understand the ways in which terrorists use technology. Its goal is to promote rigorous academic research which produces policy-relevant outputs aimed at guarding against real world harms. The International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR), based at King’s College London, convened the initiative by bringing together an international consortium of leading academic institutions, think tanks and independent experts. The core members include:
1. Program on Extremism (PoE; George Washington University, Washington, D.C., USA);
2. Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF; Frankfurt, Germany);
3. Centre of Excellence for National Security (CENS; S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Singapore);
4. Lowy Institute (LI; Sydney, Australia).
