Submission to the Legal and Social Issues Committee, Parliament of Victoria Inquiry into Extremism in Victoria. This is a joint submission by the Board of Imams Victoria (BOIV) and Victoria University’s Applied Security Science Partnership (ASSP). Consistent with the terms of reference, our submission focuses on far-right extremism. It first presents a statement from one of the authors, Imam Moustapha Sarakibi, on some of the impacts of far-right violent extremism on Australia’s Muslim communities, particularly the impact of the horrific terrorist attack perpetrated by an Australian white supremacist in Christchurch in March 2019. The submission then presents insights into the re-emergence of far-right extremist movements in Australia, the risks their plans and actions pose to Victoria, the broader context enabling these movements, and steps that can be taken in response.
