With the advent and subsequent growth of several new media technologies, violent extremist groups have incorporated social media into recruiting strategies. Extremist organizations’ recruiting messages are important, but the method and mode of communication are equally critical.
To help start a conversation on social media and extremism, Pax-Amor Initiative in collaboration with Tomruk Innovations is planning a debate on the 18th of August, 2017 in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria.
This debate will give participants the opportunity to educate each other on the use of social media and proffer solutions for the way forward.
Pax-Amor’s goal is to provide a forum for public discourse, rooted in facts and reason and we hope you will join us in educating our community about the importance of preventing extremism.
