From Morning Report, 8:38 am on 14 May 2019

Ahead of a summit to tackle the issue of online violent extremism in Paris tomorrow a pre-summit will be held today. The Voices for Action summit will call together human rights advocates, technical experts, academics and think tanks gathering to offer their perspectives on how to counter terrorosts using the internet to spread their messages. Jordan Carter is the chief executive of Internet New Zealand and is chairing the meeting and a short time ago I spoke to him about how the ideas proposed in the pre-summit can be translated into action.
