Violent extremism and conspiracy theories in the age of Corona: a multidisciplinary approach by the Dutch National Support Center for Extremism
Belief in conspiracy theories has always been a prominent component of extremism, but in recent months the spread of alternative ‘facts’ has become an increasing source of concern due to its seemingly wider reach. Since the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, the Dutch National Support Center for Extremism (Dutch abbreviation: LSE) has seen a rise from professionals and family members in requests for consultation concerning paranoid beliefs of persons in combination with potential worrisome extremist behaviors. Anticipating on currents events and trends is vital for developing strategies to counter potential processes of extremist radicalization. It is for this reason that LSE is available for advise and consultation for partner organizations, professionals and citizens who face difficulties regarding possible signs of extremism.
