While the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) no longer holds any territory, in the age of globalization and digital revolution, terrorist groups can still survive - and even thrive - in the cybersphere. The terrorist threat has long been borderless, and global. Today, it is even more so, as groups have begun to master technology to their benefit. In turn, to be successful, the fight against terrorism also has to be international and master the same instruments skillfully.
To address this underestimated yet crucial aspect of the fight against terrorism, the EGIC invited Professor Darya Bazarkina, teaching and researching at the Department of International Security and Foreign Policy of Russia (Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration) and School of International Relations (Saint Petersburg State University). An accomplished expert in international cooperation on counter-terrorism, with a special focus on the war of ideas and propaganda, Prof. Bazarkina spoke on the latest research about Advanced Technologies and Terrorism: Future Threats, Defence and Prevention at the EGIC, on April 4 at 4pm.
