News, Events, and Workshops

The Oxford Disinformation & Extremism Lab (OxDEL) shares events and workshops throughout the year that are hosted by our network and similar civil society organisations that may be of interest to researchers and practitioners working on disinformation, extremism, and online harms. If your organization or network has an event to share, please send it to the OxDEL team using the following link, attaching relevant details, timings, and the registration link.

In 2024, we will launch out research safety training workshop series both in-person and online. Our researcher safety training workshops will be free-to-access and provide participants with best practices, mental health precautions, and operational security tools when collecting data on extremism, terrorism, and influence operations. Recent research has focussed on the security and mental health risks associated with collecting research on online harms and prolonged exposure to extremist content, but limited training is available. These risks are especiialy prevalent among early career researchers and graduate students who are often not provided with any training, or adequate training, by their institutions. This lack of safety and mental health training formed parted of our inspiration to launch this initiative and will be freely accessible to all researchers and practitioners. Our research safety workshops build on research from Vox-Pol and the RESOLVE Network, along with an in-person workshop with researchers and industry leaders at the Terrorism and Social Media (TASM) Conference in 2022.
