Loving Hate: anti-Muslim extremism, Islamism and the Spiral of Polarization looks at reciprocal radicalisation between Islamists and far-right extremists and was published by ISD in cooperation with the Institute for Democracy and Civil Society in Jena.

The study contains the first systematic analysis of the online-interplay between Islamists and far-right extremists. It provides direct evidence that Islamist and far-right movements converge on different levels and amplify each other.

Our analysis focuses on measuring the interplay between extremist contents, individuals and events online. We used a combination of social listening tools, language analysis programmes and network-analysis instruments and found a strong interplay between contents, a shared vocabulary and common narratives. While direct interactions between the far-right and Islamists remained limited, we observed a high level of indirect interactions, as the far-right strongly reacted to Islamist events and vice versa.

Women, Girls and Islamist Extremism

This new toolkit will help practitioners engage more confidently with women and girls affiliated with Islamist extremism and provide guidance for broader community groups involved in safeguarding at-risk women and girls in Europe. Building on a series of interviews with intervention providers, the new toolkit sheds light on some of the reasons why British women became affiliated with ISIS. The interviews have informed a new practical toolkit which includes recommendations, case studies and tools.
