OECD report providing an overview of the policies and procedures for addressing terrorist and violent extremist content

The online library of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) brings an analysis that provides an objective snapshot of how the world’s leading online content-sharing services address TVEC – and whether their efforts are transparent and accountable – marking an important step towards an effective cross-industry response to a pernicious problem.

In the CoViD-lockdown several incidents were shown on television where Social Media was used to boast about some crimes, the actors loved to show the world they could do it undisturbed.

The 29-year old responsible for live streaming his massacre of 51 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, might be imprisoned and already forgotten, but the images may still be envisioned by many.

images of the attack live on, not only in the memories of survivors but in the video recording that frustrated online companies’ efforts to control and remove it as it spread across the Internet. {Why we need more transparency to combat terrorist and violent extremist content online}

The OECD report provides an overview of the policies and procedures for addressing terrorist and violent extremist content (TVEC) across the global top 50 online content sharing services, with a focus on transparency.
It finds that only five of the 50 services issue transparency reports specifically about TVEC, and these five services take different approaches in their reports. These services use different definitions of terrorism and violent extremism, report different types of information, use different measurement and estimation methods, and issue reports with varying frequency and on different timetables. The low number of reporting companies and the variation in what, when and how they report make it impossible to get a clear and complete cross-industry perspective on the efficacy of companies’ measures to combat TVEC online and how they may affect human rights. This situation could be improved if more companies issued TVEC transparency reports and included more comparable information.

Although the majority of services covered in our report ban content that could, to varying degrees, be considered TVEC, only five (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and Autommatic) issue transparency reports with specific information on TVEC. Correspondingly, only those five define terrorism, violent extremism and related concepts in detail. Even among just those five, the definitions used vary substantially, and other services in the top 50 define TVEC with differing degrees of specificity. {Why we need more transparency to combat terrorist and violent extremist content online}

About Guestspeaker

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world. We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
