The third edition of Europol’s annual report on Online Jihadist Propaganda provides a comprehensive analysis of the major trends and developments in online propaganda of the most prominent jihadist organisations for the year 2020.
The threat assessment is based on primary sources, including the groups’ publications, videos and audio speeches, which have been collected by the Europol’s European Union Internet Referral Unit (EU IRU) in 2020.
The report focusses on the Islamic State and al-Qaeda as well as their offshoots. It addresses the trajectories of the groups, and how they have responded to shifting dynamics and attempted to overcome setbacks.
