Tackling Radicalisation and Extremism in the Criminal Justice System Conference
“British prisons have a long history of coping with terrorists and political and religious extremists. Current trends suggest that the number of prisoners guilty of offences relating to terrorism and extremism are likely to increase.” – Ministry of Justice
The spread of extremism is the biggest challenge facing a criminal justice system (CJS) that is already under significant strain. An estimated 800 British citizens have travelled abroad to fight in Syria and Iraq, raising serious questions about how the CJS will cope with an influx of radicalised and potentially dangerous individuals. As well as dealing with confirmed terror suspects, the police, court systems, prisons, probation service and youth offender organisations are well placed to spot the early signs of extremism among young people at risk of radicalisation.
Join us for the Tackling Radicalisation and Extremism in the Criminal Justice System conference where expert speakers will explain how the CJS can do more to prevent the spread of radicalisation. Understand how the CJS can halt the spread of radical Islam and right-wing extremism, how to work more closely with schools to identify young people are risk of radicalisation and how to develop the skills needed by CJS workers to cope with the growing threat of extremism.
