This panel offers expertise on the issue of online ungoverned spaces and grey-area content that present challenges to the current counterterrorism framework structure. When we know that there are illegal terrorist operated websites or online games, where can we work with industry to help them moderate this content or with law enforcement to find alternative avenues of removal, especially across jurisdictional differences.

Where content is "lawful but awful" or borderline, what are the avenues available to work together to assess and address this content through other means? How can we better understand and communicate the danger of this content, while protecting rights?

The United Nations Counter-Terrorism Week is a biennial gathering of Member States and international counter-terrorism partners. The Third Counter-Terrorism Week (CT Week) is scheduled to take place from 19 to 23 June 2023 at the UN Headquarters in New York.
