‘Polarised’ Montenegro Urged to Address Online Extremism in New Strategy

At a moment of deep polarisation in Montenegro, authorities are being urged to address online extremism in the country’s new counter-terrorism strategy.
Montenegro’s new counter-terrorism strategy must focus more on young people and the dangers of extremist content online, civil society groups say.

Montenegro’s new Strategy for Preventing Radicalisation and Violent Extremism has been in the works since June last year.

The Interior Ministry told BIRN the new document, which was originally promised by the end of last year, would focus on young people and the role of the internet in “spreading false information”, but civil society organisations say the authorities must stick to their word at a time of deepening polarisation of Montenegrin society.
