The G7 Interior Ministers’ meeting took place in Ischia, with the participation of the European Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, and the European Commissioner for the Security Union, as well as the Secretary General of Interpol. Representatives of Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Twitter also joined the discussion for the session devoted to countering the terrorist threat on the Internet, which was a special focus area of the Ministerial meeting.


In particular, the participants agreed that it is necessary to increase the joint efforts in four main operational areas, specifically: 1) the use of automated technology for the rapid detection and removal of terrorist content and in the prevention of its further dissemination, 2) sharing of best practices and technology to enhance the resilience of smaller companies, 3) improving our knowledge base through research and development, and 4) empowering civil society partners to develop alternative narratives.


Finally, the G7 Ministerial meeting welcomed the creation of a Global Research Network by the Global Internet Forum with the representatives of the academic institutions and experts to jointly develop the analysis of the use of technologies by terrorists.
