Last year, Tech Against Terrorism reviewed the DIA’s first ever Digital Violent Extremism Transparency Report. We commended New Zealand for setting an example to other governments by publishing detailed metrics and information on how the DIA identifies terrorist and violent extremist content online and collaborates with tech platforms to remove such content.

New Zealand’s latest transparency report continues to set high standards this year, with the DIA similarly including most information and metrics recommended by Tech Against Terrorism. New Zealand’s efforts are an example for countries to follow in achieving greater meaningful transparency on online counterterrorism efforts by explaining the processes and mechanisms behind the metrics.
