The Government is committed to tackling all forms of extremism. The Counter Extremism Strategy aims to protect and safeguard communities at risk from extremism of all types.

In that strategy we committed to be evidence based and to work closely with academics and universities through commissioning and part-funding research. Decisions on how best to do this will be made in due course.
