After a series of terror attacks earlier this year in Austria and France, the European Union, its member states, and the United Kingdom are taking new steps to reduce online extremism and stem the dissemination of terrorist propaganda.
On May 17, CEP hosted an insightful event to discuss the future of the UK Prevent Review, its implementation, and the challenge of combatting terrorism in a liberal democracy. The Prevent Review is a comprehensive assessment of a key strand of the UK's counter-terrorism to stop people becoming violent extremists. This event brought together subject experts to examine the evolving landscape of the terror threat and explore new ways to enhance the effectiveness of the Prevent strategy in addressing ideologically motivated offending. Our aim is to keep the Independent Review of Prevent in the conversation and to constantly assess and reassess its recommendations against future threats and challenges.
