Bringing it Home argues that we must put communities at the heart of counter-terrorism, with a broader approach which spans social justice, community cohesion and security. It sets out a six-pronged strategy, which aims to enhance the lives of Muslims, strengthen community infrastructure, improve leadership, open up the foreign policy-making process, divert youth from extremism, and put communities at the heart of counter-terrorist interventions.

While this report paints a bleak picture of what has been done in recent years, it argues that it is not too late to make a community-based approach to counter-terrorism a reality. Only once we do this will we be able to start fighting this ‘war on terror’ on our terms rather than theirs.
