The Hong Kong Police Force (Security Wing) delegation expressed a keen interest in SEARCCT’s ongoing research on the intersections of AI and gaming within the context of counter-terrorism. This area is seen as critical due to the evolving nature of radicalisation and recruitment strategies used by terrorist groups.

The delegation also shared insights into the Security Wing’s focus on counter-terrorism, especially in the area of intelligence sharing. Key threats identified in Hong Kong include religious extremism, the spillover effects of ongoing conflicts such as the Russian-Ukraine war and the Israel-Palestinian conflict, domestic terrorism, and self-radicalisation. This underscores the complex and multifaceted nature of the terrorism threat landscape in Hong Kong.

The delegation expressed a strong interest in future collaboration and knowledge exchange with SEARCCT, particularly in areas such as strategies for preventing and countering violent extremism (PCVE), the nexus between gaming and extremism, and addressing new forms of terrorism threats. This aligns with both parties’ mutual interests in enhancing capabilities and understanding in counter-terrorism efforts.
