Location: Studio 1, Kunstquartier Bethanien, Mariannenplatz 2, 10997 Berlin

Admission: 5 Euro / day. The conference will be held in English.

An analysis of ISIS and its media strategy, the meaning of cyber jihad,
and why people enroll as foreign fighters. Directed by Tatiana
Bazzichelli and curated with Mauro Mondello.

ISIS has captivated a global network of supporters that articulates,
intensifies and disseminates its violent extremist messages worldwide.
The conference highlights the change ISIS* represents in how terrorism
is conducted and analyses how electronic jihad and strategic messaging
affect the worldwide public opinion, both in the western countries and
in the Arab world, representing a new icon of "global jihad".

On the other hand, activists and human right defenders risk their life
while reporting stories to reveal misconducts by ISIS and document the
horrors caused by the terror regime. The goal is to understand and to
discuss how ISIS unleashed cyber jihad, as well as the strategies
activists and human right advocates use to oppose this form of terror,
Internet censorship and surveillance.
