Denmark announces digital anti-radicalisation measures

The Danish government has announced a list of measures against growing radicalisation, including a ‘corps of digital voices of reason’, which aims at challenging online extremist content. The corps will be operated by civil society and would ‘systematically be present in social media and engage critically in relevant forums, take part in dialogue and challenge extremist views’. The government’s Security and Intelligence Service will also form a new unit to identify and remove extremist material from the Internet.
