    2021 Taxonomy Expansion Report

    At the beginning of 2021, we launched an effort to engage a wide range of experts on how best GIFCT could expand the taxonomy that determines what content qualifies for our hash-sharing database beyond the United Nations Security Council’s consolidated sanctions list and live-stream footage from mass violent attacks that have activated our Content Incident Protocol.

    This report is the first series of results of this effort, including the initial three ways we plan to expand our taxonomy, our findings on the feasibility and impact of expanding the hash-sharing database for our member companies, and recommendations on how to develop a common taxonomy for terrorist content from the academics, practitioners, and civil society leaders selected during our Request for Proposals announced in February 2021.
