Professor Copsey gave evidence to the Home Affairs Select Committee on the roots of violent radicalisation at a conference in December at De Montfort University in Leicester.

In November, he also visited the Research Unit on Right-Wing Extremism at the University of Applied Sciences in Dusseldorf, where he was hosted by Professor Dr Fabian Virchow. Professor Copsey gave a special lecture on the nature of the extreme right threat in contemporary Britain.
