Radicalisation expert Peter Neumann believes that there is no technological answer to stopping extremists using the Internet as a way to operate.
Neumann is in Oslo for Norway’s Board of Technology conference on radicalisation on the Internet. He told NRK that the Internet allows solo terrorists to work by finding an environment.
“On the Internet, extremists find each other and they create a unity. It is very important because they have to feel that they give an opinion.”
Norway Data Inspectorate director Bjørn Erik Thon believes that monitoring people on the Internet should be the last resort in tackling extremism.
“We will not begin to regulate us into a society that is completely safe. It is important to make the chance of new terrorist acts in Norway as small as possible whilst retaining the values that society is built on.”
