Combat extremism

Last updated 2 months ago

We will combat extremism...

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.19

Our verdict

  • This is a commitment to prevent or reduce extremism, which the government defines as “vocal or active opposition to our fundamental values”, as well as “calls for the death of members of our armed forces”.
  • In 2019, the previous government flagged an updated version of its 2015 Counter-Extremism Strategy for publication in 2020, but that has not appeared at the time of writing.
  • The government does have an existing, if outdated, strategy for combating extremism, and has committed to developing a new Counter-Extremism Strategy, so this policy is ‘in progress’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
