Radicalisation & Extremism

Radicalisation is a process by which an individual or group comes to adopt increasingly extreme political, social, or religious ideals and aspirations that (1) reject or undermine the status quo or (2) reject and/or undermine contemporary ideas and expressions of freedom of choice.

Extremism is the holding of extreme political or religious views.

In the UK, an Extremism Task force was created by the government in the wake of the Drummer, Lee Rigby’s murder.   The task force works hard to identify extremism and radicalisation.
