Maintaining Momentum: The Prevent Review and Future Threats

Wednesday, May 17, 2023

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.

Extremists: Their Words. Their Actions.

In Their Own Words:

We reiterate once again that the brigades will directly target US bases across the region in case the US enemy commits a folly and decides to strike our resistance fighters and their camps [in Iraq].
