Unpacking Radicalisation in a Prison Environment

May 2017

This document is the transcript of a meeting held in Cambridge in January 2017, under the auspices of the University of Cambridge’s Centre of Islamic Studies. The initiative, conceived and directed by Dr Ryan Williams, Research Associate at the Centre, brought together prison officers, police officers, academics and civil servants, to consider the challenges involved in managing issues around extremism in prisons.

This initiative has not sought to reach firm conclusions at this stage, but aims instead to play a role in fostering an ongoing conversation.
