Counter-radicalization (CR) policies seek to prevent future occurrences of “homegrown” terrorism – principally by Muslim actors – through pre-criminal interventions including community policing, social and educational programs, online content filtering, and targeted psycho-social interventions. To achieve their ends, CR policies rely on partnerships with Muslim civil society organizations (CSOs) who play the role of interlocutors connecting state security institutions to Muslim communities. Yet, little is understood about how Muslim CSOs balance competing demands of acceding to participate in counter-radicalization initiatives on the one hand, and on the other, raising concerns about anti-Muslim bias in CR policies. Comparing the cases of Canada and the U.K., this research shows how, in response to CR policy pressures, Muslim CSOs develop strategies that can be construed as power contestations with state institutions. This has significance for understanding how, despite institutional constraints, CSOs can use their agentic power to engage in meaningful contestations toward emancipatory goals.
