ABSTRACT

Resonating Narratives: The Scale of Islamist and Far-Right Extremism Among British Young People   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Foreword: "Counter-extremism is heavily politicised. For years, leading politicians have failed to engage constructively, shying away from tackling divisive groups head on. But the rise in identity politics should not stop us from making greater efforts to bridge divides and identify and root out those seeking to damage the social fabric of our communities. In 2020, governments across the world have had to deal with the unprecedented health and economic challenges posed by the spread of Covid-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. While the priority of every government at the moment should be to protect lives and the economy by building in the necessary infrastructure to live with the virus as we wait for a vaccine, let us not forget that the problems that existed before Covid-19 will continue to exist afterwards. If anything, Covid-19 will only exacerbate the problems that were there before."
