I'm absolutely delighted that the book I've been working on has just been published.
Reintegrating Extremists is based on nearly ten years of work looking at statutory and third sector efforts to support those who have been involved in extremism to reintegrate back into society.
Here's the blurb:
This book presents an in-depth analysis of how statutory and third sector organisations have faced the challenge of dealing with former ‘terrorists’. Offering a theoretically robust, empirically rich account of work with ex-prisoners and those considered ‘at risk’ of involvement in extremism in the United Kingdom, the book dissects the problems governments are facing in dealing with the effects of 'radicalisation'. Increasingly, governments are struggling with the challenge of dealing with those who have become involved in extremism, and yet, comparatively little is known about how and why people renounce violence. Nor are existing efforts to ‘deradicalise’ extremists well understood.
