This is the first report by the SOVA center on this subject that does not cover the entire year. The subject of “inappropriate anti-extremism” was previously a part of our quarterly reports. However, in 2010 the report structure has changed: we have published a half-year report on radical nationalism and related issues, while devoting the present report specifically to issues related to the excessive use of anti-extremist measures. Therefore, here we review events and trends dating from January through June of 2010. The events of July through early September are referenced as necessary to reflect the development of the observed trends.

This report does not provide a comprehensive list of cases involving inappropriate anti-extremist enforcement; details of such cases are available from the SOVA Center website at http://xeno.sova-center.ru/89CCE27. This paper is an attempt to analyze the main trends in this sphere. This report, therefore, is structured around the main types of inappropriate anti-extremism prevalent in 2008.21.04.2009
