POSTnote: Addressing Islamic Extremism

Dr Katherine Brown, Lecturer in Islamic Studies in the Department of Theology and Religion, has been thanked for her contribution to the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST)’s most recent public policy briefing.

The POST have focused on Islamic extremism, radicalisation and deradicalisation, and policy responses to violent and non-violent extremism in their May POSTnote. POSTnotes are based on literature reviews and interviews, are externally peer reviewed, and provide a succinct, independent, balanced and accessible briefing on a public policy issue.

May’s POSTnote, Addressing Islamic Extremism, provides an overview of research on how/why individuals or groups turn to extremism, a discussion on theories for effective deradicalisation, and the Government’s policies on tackling extremism including the forth coming Counter-Extremism and Safeguarding Bill.
