Amidst reinvigorated concerns over 'radicalization' and domestic terrorism,
Western governments are pursuing some of the most drastic changes to
national security legislation since 9/11. These changes twin unprecedented
technical capabilities with expanded legal powers for security intelligence
agencies and law enforcement. This talk explores the most recent
manifestations of pre-emptive counter-terrorism measures in Canada,
Australia, and the United States, and unpacks their potential in the
context of digital communication environments. In particular, the talk
highlights emergent challenges for the administration of justice,
democratic accountability, and human rights regarding the policing of
radicalization in online environments.

*Adam Molnar* is a Lecturer in Criminology at Deakin University Melbourne,

national security, policing, surveillance and technology. Molnar is a
senior research affiliate of the Terrorism, Security, and Society (TSAS)
Research network. He recently completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the
Queen's University Surveillance Studies Centre, and completed his PhD at
