What is Prevent?
Prevent is part of the UK counter-terrorism strategy named CONTEST. The aim of which is to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. Prevent addresses all forms of terrorism, but continues to prioritise according to the threat they pose to our national security.
At present, the majority of our resources and efforts will continue to be devoted to stopping people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. There is a commitment to protecting freedom of speech in this country. But preventing terrorism will mean challenging extremist (and non-violent) ideas that are also part of a terrorist ideology.
Prevent also means intervening to stop people moving from extremist groups or from extremism into terrorist-related activity. The Prevent strategy specifically:
- responds to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those
who promote it;
- prevents people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure that they are given
appropriate advice and support; and
- works with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation which need
to be addressed.
