What is prevent?

The Government definition of Prevent is: “Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes”.

The Prevent strategy covers all types of terrorism and extremism, including the extreme right wing, violent Islamist groups and other causes. Prevent is not about preventing our learners from having political and religious views and concerns, but about supporting them to use those concerns or act on them in non-extremist ways.

Key terms:

  • Extremism: vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values such as democracy, the rule of law and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs
  • Ideology: a set of beliefs
  • Terrorism:a violent action against people or property, designed to create fear and advance a political, religious or ideological cause
  • Radicalisation: the process by which a person comes to support extremism and terrorism
