Countering Extremism Conference: Tackling radicalisation through engagement
“Prevent is working. It is has made a significant impact in preventing people being drawn into terrorism.” – Ben Wallace MP, Security Minister
Proponents of the Government’s Prevent strategy point to the programme’s success in supporting 42,000 people at risk of radicalisation and preventing 150 journeys to conflict zones in Syria and Iraq in 2015/16. But following recent high profile attacks in Manchester and London, the effectiveness of the strategy has been called into question. Critics argue that the Prevent approach has become a “toxic brand” and called for a new strategy based on engagement and community support. In response, the 2017 Queen’s Speech included measures to review the Government’s counter terrorism strategy and to establish a “commission for countering extremism” in order to “support the government in stamping out extremist ideology in all its forms”.
Join us for the Countering Extremism Conference where expert speakers will discuss how we can best protect those at risk of radicalisation. This one day event will provide invaluable insights into the latest approaches to counter-extremism and how official strategies can be applied on a practical level.
