About Miro Dittrich
Miro Dittrich is a right-wing extremism researcher. He is interested in the intersection of technology and society, with a focus on misanthropic and anti-democratic phenomena in the digital space. Using qualitative, quantitative, and OSINT-led research, he has been providing insight into far-right propaganda, networking, and radicalization in digital spaces for years. In the wake of the increasing radicalization of far-right scenes, he focuses on international right-wing terrorism and digital niche spaces as of 2019. Other areas of his interest include content moderation and digital subcultures. In his role as a right-wing extremism expert, he regularly advises social media companies.
From 2018 to 2020, he led the de:hate project on far-right, right-wing populist, and conspiracy ideological digital phenomena for the Amadeu Antonio Foundation.
„You can’t understand the far-right without understanding the internet. You can’t understand the internet without understanding the far-right.“
