Submission: Countering violent extremism online

The Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) has put forward policy proposals on countering violent extremism online. This is InternetNZ's written submission on those proposals.

While we welcome work to address the abuse of the Internet by violent extremists, we see the measures put forward as raising a range of potential impacts and complications. We recommend a staged approach, to allow for immediate progress on the most straightforward proposals, while allowing time for the analysis and consultation needed to properly address proposals raising broader complications.
