The independent reviewer of Prevent, Lord Carlile, has issued a call for evidence
The review focuses on how the government’s strategy for safeguarding those vulnerable to radicalisation is being delivered and will make recommendations for the future of the strategy.
The call for evidence is a critical element of the review methodology set out in a Ways of Working document published on 30 September. It seeks to gather a wide range of written responses through our online survey tackling the questions set out in the review’s terms of reference published on 16 September.
Lord Carlile says:
The review is an important opportunity to take stock of the UK’s strategy to safeguard those vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism. It will allow us to consider what is working and what isn’t, and to identify what improvements need to be made. Nothing is off the table.
I want to hear from a wide range of people. This includes academics and those working in think tanks, community and religious organisations, those involved in schools, colleges and higher education, and people working with local government and the police. I also want to hear from members of the wider public. I invite you all to share your ideas and thoughts on your experience of Prevent and how things might change and improve.
The call for evidence will remain open for 2 months, until 11:45pm on 9 December 2019 and the review will report to Parliament by August 2020.
