Stopping the Next World War

Free

Join UCCD to hear how non-state actors like ISIS and state-sponsored rogue regimes are using social media and digital outreach to attack our society and push would-be extremists to the edge? Is there a solution to detect this kind of content and kill it before it kills us? Social media has dominated the discourse of recent events, from Russia to Iran and the Middle East – yet the roles of social media in these events and the use of the dark web, hacking, and digital attacks are still largely misunderstood. Identifying key trends, Dr. Haroon Ullah posits what a proper understanding of social media can teach us about regional and international politics and diplomacy.
