Violent Extremism fueled by hate speech in many media remains a problem of critical importance affecting many regions in the world. Societies face serious challenges in trying to respond to these threats. The private sector plays a key role in this, and States increasingly are requesting ICT businesses to take measures such as blocking, filtering or removing content and user accounts. Companies, partly in response to such calls for action, appear to intensify their efforts to combat “extremist” messages and hate speech, often in cooperation with States agencies.

L'extrémisme violent alimenté par le discours de haine dans de nombreux médias reste un problème d'une importance cruciale dans nombreuses régions du monde. Dans leurs tentatives de répondre à ces menaces, les différentes sociétés font face à de sérieux défis. Dans ce contexte, le secteur privé joue un rôle clé à cet égard et les Etats demandent de plus en plus aux entreprises du secteur des TIC de prendre des mesures telles que le blocage, le filtrage ou la suppression de contenu et de comptes d'utilisateurs. De leur côté, les entreprises, en partie en réponse à de tels appels à l'action, semblent intensifier leurs efforts pour lutter contre les messages « extrémistes » et les discours de haine, souvent en coopération avec les acteurs étatiques.
