ICCT Annual Conference 2023 – Hybrid Extremism: Causes and Responses to Anti-Institutional and Far-Right Extremisms

28 June @ 8:00 am 29 June @ 5:00 pm

International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (ICCT) is hosting their Annual Conference, where researchers, practitioners, and policymakers will come together to explore the causes, challenges, and responses to far-right and anti-institutional extremisms in a world of flux.

Democratic principles are being challenged on all sides, the social fabric is eroding, and public trust in core institutions corroded. Trends like these are not entirely new, but have been further exacerbated by the Covid-19 crisis, thriving conspiracy theories, and proactive disinformation campaigns. These conditions are conducive to the rapid emergence of so-called “anti-institutional extremism”, the re-emergence of right-wing extremism, and the hybridisation of extremist ideologies, facilitated by a changing and pervasive information ecosystem. Such developments have far-reaching effects, manifesting both locally and globally, which will be discussed throughout this conference.
