SUMMARY
The VOX-Pol project’s inaugural week-long Training Academy was designed to provide policymakers, law enforcement, social media companies, and others professionally tasked with responding to violent online extremism and terrorism with an introduction to the role of the Internet in contemporary violent political extremism(s), including the online strategies of violent jihadis and the extreme right; the role of the Internet in lone actor terrorism; the online behaviours of convicted terrorists; the gender dimensions of violent online extremism; and online CVE (Countering Violent Extremism).

The School was composed of a mix of formal lectures, breakout/discussion sessions, and hands-on labs. The latter were dedicated to providing participants with an overview of tools and methods for research and analysis in this domain.
