For years now advo­ca­cy groups, activists and aca­d­e­mics have been met with a wall of secre­cy when peti­tion­ing the gov­ern­ment to release the sci­ence behind their counter-ter­ror­ism and counter-extrem­ism strategy.

A few months ago, how­ev­er, advo­ca­cy group CAGE came across a jour­nal arti­cle hid­den away in a niche jour­nal in the Unit­ed States. It is this arti­cle that has formed the basis of a shock­ing report released today by CAGE enti­tled, ‘The “Sci­ence” of Pre-Crime’.

Islam21c car­ried out an exclu­sive inter­view with the Research Direc­tor for CAGE, Asim Qureshi, to explain the report’s find­ings and their sig­nif­i­cance. Click the play­er above to watch.
