National Response Model on Countering Online Extremism 

About the Response Model

In response to the rising threat of online extremism, the Secure Communities Forum (SCF), in collaboration with global partners, created the National Response Model for Countering Online Extremism. Acknowledging the internet as a persistent platform for radicalization, the SCF aimed to guide the enhancement of collaboration between governmental and non-governmental agencies through the response model.

Developed by diverse experts in counter-extremism, internet psychology, faith leadership, and psychology, the model takes a uniquely holistic and collaborative approach. Embracing a multi-stakeholder strategy, a common knowledge base, and universal adaptability, the model provides a robust framework for countering online radicalization.

The response model explores many key verticals that can act against online extremism such as traditional law enforcement agencies but also explore innovative channels such as video games and cultural heroes.
