HM Prison & Probation Service - Exploring the role of the Internet in radicalisation and offending of convicted extremists.
The aim of the study was to establish the role of the Internet in radicalisation1 processes and offending of those convicted of extremist offences2 in England and Wales by comparing radicalisation pathways across three groups: those who primarily radicalised online; those who primarily radicalised offline; and those radicalised through both online and offline influences. Four key areas were investigated: first, whether the Internet plays a prominent role in radicalisation; second, whether those taking different radicalisation pathways differ in their internet use; third, whether differences exist in demographic profiles and type of offences committed by those taking different radicalisation pathways; and fourth, whether the pathway taken impacts on professionals’ perceptions of risk of committing future violent extremist offences.
