The Centre for Social Cohesion (CSC) describes itself as “a non-partisan independent organisation specialising in studying radicalisation and extremism within Britain”.1
Its director is Douglas Murray.
On 1 April 2011, the CSC merged with the Henry Jackson Society. CSC’s website says: “We are pleased to announce that the CSC has combined together with the London-based think tank The Henry Jackson Society, who share the same philosophy as the CSC in addition to their broader mission statement.”2
The CSC has been criticised in The Guardian for alleged “relentless Islamophobia” which has “spread poison and whipped up anti-Muslim paranoia at every turn”.3
