Funding

On its website the group does not state where its funding comes from. As of early December 2007 the group's website states that "ICSR is currently in the process of being registered as a charity. In the meantime, you can make charitable donations through our partner institutions." [2]

The ISCR states that for 2008 it will carry out research on three priority areas: "strategies through which to counter radicalisation and recruitment on the Internet."; "compare and evaluate programmes aimed at ‘reforming' radical prison inmates"; and "construct the most up to date ‘radicalisation cycle' based on everything known about the radicalisation process."
