The Policy Institute at King’s College London was asked by the Lead Commissioner for Countering Extremism, Sara Khan, to conduct an analysis of data derived through the Commission’s online call for evidence which ran from November 2018 to January 2019. The call for evidence produced 2,835 responses – including 278 responses submitted by those who identified as practitioners or who responded on behalf of an organisation.

This report contains findings from our analysis of these responses relating to the tactics viewed by practitioners to be extremist as well as the harms that emerge from those tactics. Specifically, it seeks to answer two questions:

1. What tactics do extremists use to achieve their objectives?
2. What are the harms caused by extremist incidents?
