    Right wing extremist (RWE) activity is increasing globally, and is associated with a wide range of harms, including doxxing, public unrest, stalking, assault, and murder. This webinar examines the history and status of RWE networks in Australia (with a focus on Victoria), their current status, goals, and direction, and explores ways that professionals and institutions in forensic, security, or academic roles can manage risks associated with exposure to RWE communities.
