UK Parliamentary Committee Releases Report on “Roots of Violent Radicalisation

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.
