The Prevent Duty

Wood for the Trees

Jan 26 2023 • 1 hr 4 mins

The Prevent Duty is a legal obligation placed on authorities in the UK, including teachers, to identify and report signs of radicalisation. The goal is to stop people from being indoctrinated by terrorist ideologies. But activists argue that the policy infringes on civil liberties and intrudes on the lives of young people.

Featuring:

Professor Steven Greer - a scholar of human rights and counter-terrorism

Professor John Holmwood - sociologist and co-chair of the People's Review of Prevent
