In 2019, Lise Waldek and Julian Droogan — researchers from the Department of Security Studies and Criminology — along with Brian Ballsun-Stanton博士 collected and analysed millions of posts across six social media platforms to gain an understanding of the nature, scale and threat posed by the online spread of right-wing extremism in NSW. Commissioned by the State Government after the 2019 Christchurch attack by a far-right Islamophobe and terrorist from NSW, this empirical research presented policy-oriented recommendations on how government can address the problem of far-right violent extremism.
This research identified a ‘creeping threat’ that online right-wing extremist narratives pose to Australian social cohesion. By providing evidence on the impact of the convergence of technological change and extremist subcultures on Australian social and political norms to State and Federal Government committees, the researchers directly supported government decision-making.
