After 9/11, several countries seek out moderate partners in the Muslim communities to fight the recruitment for jihadist terrorism. However several governments choose to cooperate with nonviolent Islamists, because (apparently) they condemn terrorism. Therefore the present article will analyze the strategy to combat radicalization on Islamic extremism in Great Britain (2006-2015), bearing in mind the option to cooperate with nonviolent Islamists. For that end, it will be compared the different options made by the Labor party and the government coalition-between the Conservative and the Liberal party-, and also analyzed a program to fight radicalization (Channel). Finally, regarding "lessons learned", it will be analyzed the fighting of radicalization on Islamic extremism in Portugal.
