The Centre for the Response to Radicalisation and Terrorism is think tank with an interest in Islamic Terrorism. Members have published research on Islamic terrorism and "extremism", and spoken on commercially-controlled media about the topic.

Official narrative

The Centre's website stated, as of February 2018: "The Centre for the Response to Radicalisation and Terrorism at The Henry Jackson Society (CRRT) is the first-of-its-kind institute providing top-quality, in-depth research coupled with the execution and implementation of targeted, tangible and impactful activities to combat the very real threat radical Islam poses to our society. The Centre has already released a policy paper and a briefing examining two sides of the most difficult challenge Britain faces in regards to radicalisation and terrorism: the rise of the Islamic State."[1]

Activities

Tom Wilson, a fellow at the Centre, stated that “While countries from across the Gulf and Iran have been guilty of advancing extremism, Saudi Arabia is undoubtedly at the top of the list."[2]
