What you need to know

Prevent – one of the four strands of the UK’s Counter-Terrorism Strategy – is often described as ‘toxic’ for disproportionately targeting Muslim communities.  Its implementation has proved challenging because it involves intervening in individuals’ lives before they become violent extremists.  Since 2015 specified authorities such as prisons, schools and the NHS have had a legal duty to have due regard for the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.  In order to maximise the effectiveness of efforts to prevent people from becoming radicalised and carrying out terror attacks, a coordinated approach is required.  That approach can also usefully acknowledge the relationship between Prevent and the other strands of the Counter-Terrorism Strategy (Pursue, Protect and Prepare).

- The challenges facing organisations and individuals who are implementing Prevent; 

- How to navigate designing or accessing appropriate training for individuals who are required to comply with the Prevent Duty; 

- Approaches to multi-agency working in support of Prevent; 

- Prevent’s place within the UK’s Counter-Terrorism Strategy.
