This report takes a look into the Commission for Countering Extremism (CCE), formed in 2018.

The report tackles the theoretical basis of the CCE and British counter-extremism more broadly, including its recent turn to combatting the far-right and ‘hate crime’, as the body seeks to build support for repressive counter-extremism measures.

It also profiles the individuals represented on the CCE’s ‘Expert Group’ and looks in to the deeply troubling networks that have embedded themselves within the CCE and that are closely tied to the global Islamophobia industry.
