Über CEP

Das Counter Extremism Project (CEP) ist eine gemeinnützige, überparteiliche, internationale Organisation, die das Ziel verfolgt, der Bedrohung durch extremistische Ideologien entgegenzuwirken und pluralistisch-demokratische Kräfte zu stärken. Neben Büros in den Vereinigten Staaten verfügt CEP über Standorte in Berlin und Brüssel.

Die Aktivitäten von CEP werden geleitet von einer internationalen Gruppe ehemaliger Politiker, leitender Regierungsbeamter und Diplomaten. CEP finanziert sich aus Spenden von Privatpersonen und projektbezogenen Fördermitteln.

CEP übt dazu durch eigene Recherchen und Studien Druck auf finanzielle und materielle Unterstützungsnetzwerke von extremistischen und terroristischen Organisationen aus, arbeitet den Narrativen von Extremisten und Terroristen sowie ihren Rekrutierungstaktiken im Internet entgegen, entwickelt good practices zur Reintegration von Extremisten und Terroristen, und wirbt für effektive Regulierungen und Gesetze.

Mai 2021: CEP Policy Paper: “EU Commission consultation – Digital Services Act package – ex ante regulatory instrument of very large online platforms acting as gatekeepers”

The current draft DSA is based on a set of narratives about the role, function and business models of so-called gatekeeper platforms that do not seem to adequately reflect their actual functionality and commercial purpose. This paper will therefore those systemic misunderstandings and provide an alternative narrative that might help to build the internet and intermediary services the EU is actually aiming for.
