“Community and Radicalisation: an Examination of Perceptions, Ideas, Beliefs and Solutions throughout Australia was a year-long national study designed and conducted as a qualitative research project through a partnership between Victoria Police, Victoria University and the Australian Multicultural Foundation. The key aims of the study were:
• To identify how communities understand the meanings of and relationship between radicalisation and extremism.
• To explore community perceptions of the underlying drivers for radicalisation and extremism.
• To explore perceptions of the impact of radicalisation and extremism on sense of community and social harmony and cohesion.
• To solicit community views about effective approaches to and solutions for eliminating or reducing the threat of violent extremism in Australia.
• To provide an evidence base for community views and perceptions that can inform and support the development of effective policies and strategies to counter radicalisation and extremism in Australia.”
