In the following brief, CAGE contributes to the UK Government’s review of the Muslim Brotherhood by highlighting a number of key concerns.

First, the brief challenges the central charge prompting this review, that the Muslim Brotherhood might be an extremist organisation. Second, the brief questions the Government’s definitions of what constitutes ‘extremism’ and ‘violent extremism’ and its insistence on conflating the two terms. Third, the brief raises concerns relating to the integrity of the review and the efficacy of its potential outcomes.
