Welcome to Volume 10, Issue 3 of the VOX-Pol Newsletter.


A launch event for the Tech Against Terrorism Europe (TATE) project takes place in Paris on Thursday, 28 September 2023, from 14:30 to 20:30.

The event will bring together relevant actors in countering the terrorist use of the internet, in particular the diverse stakeholders involved in implementing the EU’s regulation on terrorist content. VOX-Pol Member Institutions Swansea University, Dublin City University and Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich make up three of the six TATE consortium members.

The event will include a brief presentation of the TATE project and its aims in supporting hosting service providers (HSPs) align their counterterrorism response with the EU Regulation on the dissemination of terrorist content online, followed by three panel sessions. TATE welcomes you to register your interest in attending.
