The Government is committed to defeating extremism wherever it occurs, and is establishing a Commission for Countering Extremism to support this effort. The Commission will identify extremism and advise the Government on how best to tackle it. It will also support communities and the public sector to confront all forms of extremism and promote and defend our fundamental values.

This builds on existing work under the Government’s comprehensive Counter-Extremism Strategy to countering extremist ideology, develop partnerships with all those opposed to extremism, disrupt the most dangerous extremists, and build cohesive communities.
