About Radicalisation

Radicalisation is defined as the process by which someone starts to believe in or support extreme views, and in some cases, then participates in terrorist groups or acts.
There is no obvious profile of a person likely to become involved in extremism or a single indicator of when a person might move to adopt violence in support of extremist ideas.
It can be motivated by a range of factors, including ideologies, religious beliefs, political beliefs and prejudices against particular groups of people.
The process of radicalisation is different for every individual and can take place over an extended period or within a very short time frame.
