The Centre for Social Cohesion (CSC) describes itself as "a non-partisan independent organisation specialising in studying radicalisation and extremism within Britain".[1]

Its director is Douglas Murray.

On 1 April 2011, the CSC merged with the Henry Jackson Society. CSC's website says: "We are pleased to announce that the CSC has combined together with the London-based think tank The Henry Jackson Society, who share the same philosophy as the CSC in addition to their broader mission statement."[2]

The CSC has been criticised in The Guardian for alleged "relentless Islamophobia" which has "spread poison and whipped up anti-Muslim paranoia at every turn".[3]
