Presenter: Mr Nick Johnson
Title: Law Enforcement Responses to Online Violent Extremism: The ANCODI Hypothesis
Biography: Nick is a research assistant at the Centre for Global Issues. He is also a Masters by Research in Criminal Justice student. Nick’s research interests concern radicalisation, terrorism and extremism, right-wing extremist movements, disengagement and de-radicalisation, outlaw motorcycle gangs and gang culture, social psychology, organised crime, and psychopathy.
Abstract: The relationship between the internet and radicalisation has received an increasing amount of attention in recent years. Although scholars have examined how terrorist and violent extremist groups have used the internet to recruit and promote their propaganda, less attention has been paid to developing a practical way for law enforcement to engage with "radicalising" or “radicalised” individuals online.
This presentation outlines how law enforcement can screen online emotions, particularly anger, contempt, and disgust (ANCODI) to assist in allocating risk and resources to tackle those individuals who are perceived to be at increased risk of escalating to political/ideological violence. Created by Matsumoto, Hwang, and Frank (2016), the ANCODI hypothesis is an empirically sound concept that can be used by law enforcement, as it provides evidence of the causational relationship between ANCODI and the potential for violence to occur. Building bridges between academics and practitioners, this research has been of interest to serving officers in the Western Australia Police Force.
