Intelligence and Security Committee to hold two days of hearings into extremist movements and radicalism in Australia


The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security will hold two public hearings this week for its Inquiry into extremist movements and radicalism in Australia.

Various Government agencies and organisations will speak at the hearing on Thursday while the Friday hearing will hear from civil society groups, academics, and tech companies.

Committee Chair Senator James Paterson stated ‘These hearings will provide the Committee with a solid base of evidence to this Inquiry. The Committee is looking forward to discussing this significant national security topic with some of the leading experts in the field of extremism and radicalisation.’

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, teleconference and video conference facilities will be used to connect witnesses to Committee Members. The hearings will be broadcast live on the Watch Parliament website.

Further information on the inquiry can be obtained from the Committee’s website.
