The Home Affairs Committee of the British House of Commons released its long awaited report on “The Roots of Violent Radicalisation” earlier today.  Based on nine months of hearings, site visits and numerous written submissions, the report provides a comprehensive overview of recent developments and trends.

It highlights, in particular, the increasing role of the internet, the emergence of “lone wolf” terrorists, and the potential threat from far-right extremists. It also assesses the UK government’s revised Prevent strategy.

ICSR’s Contribution

The report quotes extensively from research and testimony given in Parliament by ICSR’s Director, Professor Peter Neumann, and refers to work on far-right militancy by ICSR research fellow Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens.
