Description - Prevent Strategy: Helping the Vulnerable Being Drawn towards Terrorism or Another Layer of State Surveillance? by David Lowe

Prevent Strategy is a collection of work from practitioners - youth workers and the police - and academics researching Prevent. This book examines overcoming the stigma attached to Prevent being implicitly racist, problems related to the section 26 duty, training staff on Prevent, creating safe spaces to have open discussions, problems regarding extremists' online activity, and the law surrounding freedom of expression.

Since its introduction, the UK's Prevent strategy has been surrounded with controversy ranging from making the Muslim community a dangerous 'suspect community' to being another layer of police surveillance on individuals who have not been arrested or convicted of a crime. Despite amendments to the strategy - which now covers all forms of extremism - and adopting a multi-agency approach, these suspicions remain, exacerbated by the section 26 Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 duty on specified authorities to prevent vulnerable people being drawn towards terrorism.

This book's findings on the Prevent strategy will be an invaluable tool for staff in education, the health service, and the criminal justice agencies who carry out the section 26 duty. It will also appeal to academics and students studying the area of terrorism and security.
