Understanding the Different Terms
Since 2010, The Home Office say that more than 310,000 pieces of illegal extremist content have been removed from the internet.
The internet itself is not responsible for the radicalisation of children and young people, but it creates a fertile environment where behaviours can accelerate the process of radicalisation in ways never seen before.
Young people may be more vulnerable to the impact of harmful extremist content without the right critical thinking and media literacy skills.
Violent content can be used in the radicalisation process, where it depicts an act of violence on minorities by armed forces or other extremist groups. This content can be designed to show injustice which incites anger as part of the radicalisation process.
