The launch of the Extremism and Gaming Research Network

Gamers Who Hate presentation

The Extremism and Gaming Research Network (EGRN) launched in October 2021 to explore the harmful use of gaming by extremist actors, as well as the medium’s potential for good. ISD is one of the network’s 11 founding counter extremism organisations.

The launch event outlined the network’s research agenda and ISD’s Milo Comerford presented on right-wing extremists using gaming to recruit members, build communities and spread their message.  Further information can be found in the ISD report Gamers Who Hate: An Introduction to ISD’s Gaming and Extremism Series.

Milo Comerford is Head of Policy & Research, Counter Extremism at ISD.
