  • The discussion centred on a comparative analysis of how individuals and stakeholders engage with terror sites, using the case studies of Norway and Indonesia.
  • Balbi spoke of the need for stronger CVE measures, highlighting the multiple media platforms available to terror groups and their subsequent monopoly on public narratives.
  • Balbi asserts that counter narratives can undermine the security and influence of terror groups, emphasising the necessity of providing terror victims with a platform to speak out.
